Past Words of the Day

A term for Detroit coined by former president Franklin Roosevelt during the second World War to describe the transition of the Ford Motor Company's production from cars to tanks.

1. A very unique term to New Orleans for the median of a street. The Spanish and French, who inhabited the older part of town, could do business on the "neutral" part of Canal Street with the Americans, who inhabited the newer part of town that started on the other side of the street. By extension, all strips of land in the middle of New Orleans streets have become "neutral ground".

2. A part of Western Louisiana that was temporarily made neutral after the Louisiana Purchase. Texas (Spanish) and the United States laid claim to the strip of land, but ended up tabling the issue until later. It is also know as Sabine Free State.

3. Neutral Ground Coffeehouse is New Orleans' oldest coffeehouse, surviving a kitchen fire and Hurricane Katrina over the years. It started out as the Penny Post, but later was called Neutral Ground.

4. Also the name of a coffee shop on Danneel Street.

1. The playful nickname for Illinois Central College on the bluff in East Peoria.

2. Nickname for Illinois Central College, the local community college, poking fun at the school since almost anyone can get in there and it's thought of as a grown-up version of high school.

1. This is August 15 and a few days on either side. When all the leases in the central city turn over at the same time, many students and other renters leave vast piles of unwanted belongings on the curb as they change apartments. These items are often taken home by others as the population garbage picks the piles. When someone asks where you got an item, you reply "Hippie Christmas."

2. Most leases in Madison, Wisconsin go from August 15th to August 14th of the following year. Many students are stuck in no man's land from noon on the 14th to noon on 15th while the owners are turning over the apartments. Some people camp out overnight guarding their earthly possessions. In the aftermath of this multiple-day circus plenty of rancid old pieces of furniture are left out on the curb for opportunistic hippies to snatch.

3. Whether it makes them hippies or not, many UW students wait for Hippie Christmas to furnish their new (but not very new) apartments. It costs a lot of money to furnish a place and college students are often strapped for cash. The trick is to find something that isn't drenched beyond repair. Many finds are quite salvageable.
