I appreciate that flattering reminiscence, Steve.  

I'm no Dr. Johnson, though.  That great man once used "equiponderant" and "adscititious" both in the same sentence.  

My own proudest achievement along those lines, as a conservative, is having once, in a published review, used "bastardy" and "buggery" in the same sentence.

And even Dr. Johnson may not have been infallible.
