Submitted Palindromes: RANDOM PILES 37

You have reached the "Submitted Palindromes" thread on the blog "Edifying Nonsense", a light literary entity that emanates through the blogosphere 5 times per month.

  On the 25th of each month you can find a slide-filling group of palindromic phrases submitted to the editors by a panel of 7 palindromists. These folks have all been working on this project since January 2020. Their profiles are indicated in panels published here at the start of things, and periodically (about every eight 'issues'), we ask them to provide, palindromically, of course, their views on one of the iconic items in the classic literature, starting with "A man, a plan, a canal -- Panama", and continuing with other well-known phrases, such as "Dennis sinned". Otherwise, their contribution are grouped in random piles (a phrase that you might recognize as an anagram of the word p-a-l-i-n-d-r-o-m-e-s). Contribution by others, such as you, will likely be published, although we are still awaiting a trickle of requests.

  You can find these back-and-forth enlightenments, as well as a lot of other stuff that appeals to word-nerds, in the contents listed by date in the right-hand column of the blog-page. By the way, the twentieth of each month is devoted to a major article on wordplay (starting with a didactic series in 2020 on "political palindromes"); and the posts on the 5th, 10th and 15th to collections of terse and mirthful verse (limericks and "limerrhoids"), that are often targeted at wordplay.

   As a web-traveller, you might have landed here while roaming from a starting point on the blog "Daily Illustrated Nonsense" (a repository of verse, parody-song-lyrics and related photos, as well as wordplay)If you wish to return, click the link.
