TO MY INTELLIGENT FRIENDS: and all MLgf'ers

I am sending this only to my smart friends.

See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common:

1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven
7. Assess

Are you peeking or have you already given up?
Give it another try...
Look at each word carefully. You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer.

No, it is not that they all have at least two or more identical letters...

Let me know if you found the answer.

The Socialists told us long ago that since they could not beat us with force, that they would destroy us slowly from within. So far it is working pretty well. MOLON LABE

OK, if you want to be a stickler for detail....but that does not invalidate my statement-- those words all have that characteristic in common. I should receive a half of the prize!!

it looks like if you take the first letter and place it at the end of the word, the word becomes the same word, but backwards. A modified palindrome perhaps?

ok,what is bupkis?


"My ardent desire is, and my aim has been ... to comply strictly with all our engagements foreign and domestic; but to keep the United States free from political connections with every other country. To see that they may be independent of all, and under the influence of none. In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others; this, in my judgment, is the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home." --George Washington, letter to Partick Henry, 1775
