When I read the headline for the lead article in today's Baltimore Sun, I had to keep looking at it again and again. The headline read "Opposing votes limn difference in race" (Sept. 7). I tried substituting various letters in the word "limn" to see if I could come up with a word that made sense to me. I could not. When I saw that the word was repeated in the headline on page 13, I finally went to the computer and did a spell check. It checked out but I then had to run it through two thesauri to come up with definitions of this word, which would more commonly be used in a production of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
