Today fun with palindrome.  The word palindrome was first published by Henry Peacham in 1638 in his book, The Truth of Our Times.  The word itself is from the Greek “palin” meaning “back,” and “dromos” meaning “direction.” A palindrome is a word, number, phrase, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backward as forward, such as madam, racecar.  Some well-known English palindromes are, “Able was I ere I saw Elba”, “A man, a plan, a canal – Panama”, “Madam, I’m Adam” and “Never odd or even”.  One other; do geese see God?
