If Pat Roberts lived in Dodge City, why did he travel 1,400 miles out of his way to purchase his car in laurel, Maryland?
One artist, Edgardo Aragón from Oaxaca, tries to capture that in an exhibition at the laurel Gitlen Gallery.
But no laurel wreaths waited for Marina on the day of her victory.
c.1300, lorrer, from Old French laurier (12c.), from Latin laurus "laurel tree," probably related to Greek daphne "laurel" (for change of d- to l- see lachrymose), probably from a pre-IE Mediterranean language. The change of second -r- to -l- after mid-14c. is by dissimilation. An emblem of victory or of distinction, hence the phrase to rest (originally repose) on one's laurels, first attested 1831.
