comment Revealing that someone else is gay — counterpart to “come out”
outed isn't specific to revealing sexual preference. It's often used that way and has that connotation in many contexts, but it can refer to the revelation of any secret identity. For example: J.K. Rowling was recently outed as the author of _Cuckoo's Calling_. (I'm not disagreeing with p.s.w.g here, just trying to clarify.)

comment Is a “doozy” a good or bad thing?
Wiktionary seems to rely on World Wide Words:Doozy for this information. IMO, it's silly to discount the influence of Duesenberg automobiles, too. The Duesenberg name may not have been the genesis of the term doozy, but the Duesie nickname may have reinforced the meaning and made the term even more common. It's been quite a while since I read it, but I think I remember a reference to Duesenberg as a source for doozy in The Great Cars.

comment Is there a word for numbers between 10 and 99?
@Lynn Depends on context. I'm sure you've heard six figure salary or that a jury awarded damages reaching well into nine figures. But yeah, agree that we'd never talk about a two figure number here in the US.
