Howard Bergerson worked as a shingle weaver for about forty years in a small Oregon town called Sweet Home. Shingle weaving does not require your full attention so Howard built palindromes in his head while his hands packed the shingles. Howard moved to Sweet Home in 1950 and by 1964 he was listed in the Guinness book of world records as having written the longest palindrome that made sense. ¿Edna Waterfall¿ was the name of the poem. After 1964 the category was dropped due to the advent of the computer. Howard is a past editor of Word Way magazine and is currently working on a new book that relates the constancy of nature to other aspect of physical science.Was this review helpful?
