On the train a friend took objection to the Horace's observation that "nothing is beautiful from every angle." She answered "Maybe a sphere." Then she taught me some new interesting words, euonym (well suited name) and caconym (badly chosen name), courtesy of her son who studies linguistics at Colorado State.
