Ah, Ol' Brosie. Such a joy. I just yesterday used a Bierce definition: "Telescope, n. A device having a relation to the eye similar to that of the telephone to the ear, enabling distant objects to plague us with a multitude of needless details.” Dyspepsia is a marvelous thing. Thanks for the reminder that Johnson had his own personal take on things. I shall have to look.
