Happy Palindrome Day

Well, maybe not in a literal sense, but in a numerical one. Today, 01-02-2010, is the rare palindromic date — the sort that must gladden Anna, Eve, Otto and the other residents of the Maryland town of Glenelg. I like quirky dates — like the upside down/rightside up 1961 — and was pleased to see that the new decade has provided a gift so quickly.

If you’re still not hung over from New Year’s celebrations, you can try some palindromic (Or is it palindromedary? No that’s Sarah riding a camel.) puzzles at this New York Times science blog. Or, if you’re a word-nerd, check out this palindrome list, which includes the classic “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama” as well as the Zen-like “Some men interpret nine memos.”
