Wyomingite? Don’t the people of Wyoming deserve better?

May 2nd, 2011

Justice Scalia prefers the term Wyomans to Wyomingite. In Montana v. Wyoming and North Dakota, Nino dropped this comical footnote to the word “Wyomans.”

*The dictionary-approved term is “Wyomingite,” which is also thename of a type of lava, see Webster’s New International Dictionary 2961 (2d ed. 1957). I believe the people of Wyoming deserve better.
