It’s “Laicize” — Duh

My thanks to eagle-eyed reader (and Scrabble enthusiast) M.B., who pointed out that my IAICIZED in the post three below about Word Freak should be LAICIZED. (It’s been fixed in the original post, too.) In his book, Fatsis had the L at the front lowercase, which threw me off. I’m telling you, Scrabble people are serious. And so you know, “laicize” is a verb meaning “to remove the clerical character or nature of; secularize.” Don’t say this site never taught you anything.
