Roget\'s Thesaurus Wronged

There\'s a neat Audio Interview [You need Real Player] with author Simon Winchester over on NPR.

\"...who voices his frustration with the misuse of Roget\'s Thesaurus. Roget apparently never intended his book to be used for finding synonyms at all -- its creation was merely a game to pass the time. Winchester is author of the bestselling book, The Professor and the Madman. His article on Roget will appear in Atlantic magazine\".

I\'m pretty sure it\'s in the issue I have at home, so I think the article is already out.
