I apologize for not adhering to procedure - I obviously didn't read the instructions. Again, I am sorry.

I also find that the word combination is in none of the dictionaries - which is a problem I encounter often in my daily quest - but still the expression is used by everyone? So if the free Merriam Webster does not recognize it, but the WSJ uses it, leo not going to reflect it? That seems very backwards. The WSJ is more reputable for finance matters, but subscriber only, so I'll post one link to the NYT which is free as an example. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?re...
