Madam, I'm Adam.
I've always been fascinated by words, and especially the many different and clever uses for them.
I recently got to thinking about the palindrome.
(The post title is one)
What set this particular train of thought into motion was seeing a new one in a magazine article I was reading.
Along with the one in the title, some common ones are:
"A man, a plan, a canal; Panama."
"Able was I, ere I saw Elba."
They all have to read the same backwards as forwards.

I remember when I was growing up in Philly, someone once told me that a nearby street (Camac) was the only one in the city that was the same both ways. Being something of a skeptic even in my youth, I looked into the matter and found a couple more.

While surfing "Da 'Net" to do this post, I found an interesting website that lists plenty of them here...so apparently I am not alone in my fascination with them.
Anyway, the one that I saw in the magazine was:
"Go hang a salami; I'm a lasagna hog."
Big deal, right? I know, I'm weird...
