sycophancy

The New York Times (I love that you don’t have to sign up for or pay for the online edition now) has a cool feature. You can double click on a word and a new window opens containing a definition of the word. So when I read in a David Brooks column that "Presidents are buffeted by sycophancy, criticism and betrayal."  I double clicked on sycophancy. A new window opened and it made me smile when I saw  sycophancy defined as "fawning obsequiousness". I do know what that means but just for the fun of it I check to see if I could double click on obsequiousness. You can’t.
