"Dick Cavett" and "awesomeness", appearing together for what I believe to be the first time ever in a commentary on the New York Times website. Technically I guess that's three words. No matter.
Not that Dick Cavett wasn't a cool cat back in his day, but his use of the word "awesomeness" is ridiculously anachronistic. If you are old enough to have interviewed Mick Jagger when he looked like a young lesbian (as opposed to an elderly transgender woman), you should let the whippersnappers own that word. And by whippersnappers I mean the under-50 crowd.
