Superior Person's Tuesday!

Poliosis n. Premature graying of the hair. A puzzling concept – after all, what graying of hair is not premature?

The stress of being in charge of an entire nation usually causes poliosis for the President of the United States.
Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Poliosis appears in the Second.
