I linked yesterday to esquire magazine's report on the lack of benefits available to the Navy SEAL who shot bin Laden.
The interview was conducted for an esquire magazine profile that never saw print, the Free Beacon reported.
In a 1964 esquire profile, the usually savage Helen Lawrenson said his personality had paralyzed her into wordlessness.
late 14c., from Middle French esquier "squire," literally "shield-bearer" (for a knight), from Old French escuyer, from Vulgar Latin scutarius "shield-bearer, guardsman" (in classical Latin, "shield-maker"), from scutum "shield" (see hide (n.1)).
For initial e-, see especial. Cf. squire. Originally the feudal rank below knight, sense broadened 16c. to a general title of courtesy or respect for the educated class, especially, later, in U.S., for lawyers.
