Ruminating over ‘redux’

By Debra Dobbins

The adjective “redux” is a perennial favorite among headline writers. It means “brought back” or “restored.” It comes from the Latin reducer, which meant “to lead back,” according to Webster’s.

I have no idea of the make of the restored vintage car shown below. I wish it were a Rolls, because I‘d alliteratively dub it a Rolls Royce Redux.
