New word

ZUGZWANG; German, from chess: "..a situation... in which a player cannot make a move without worsening his situation."

I think I got it from the WSJ but did not write down the source. It is a useful concept.

Dear Mr.Bodio,
I wanted to ask you about an article you wrote in 1987 about falconry, but I do not have your email address. Could you email me at
ladyfalconer at yahoo dot com.
Thank you
