Dr. "M.'s" Palimpsest Korner

Welcome once again to Dr. "M.'s" Palimpsest Korner, our latest and most stimulating regular feature, in which Dr. "M." informs us whenever she runs across the pleasant and useful word "palimpsest" in the course of her daily life. It appears, she reports, in Chapter One of Michael Elliott's book CUSTEROLOGY. Palimpsest! P.S. When I was looking for an illustration with which to adorn this "post," I ran across an article called "Ethical Considerations for the Conservation of Circus Posters." I haven't read it, but the title is great, which is the most important thing.
