Letters: Love for “Labor of Love”

I really enjoyed “A Labor of Love (for Words)” [Summer 2012]. However, I noticed that the word we used in rural Wisconsin for dragonfly was missing. We called it a “flying clothespin.” The ones in our small lake town sure looked big enough to fit the name! Also, we called cicadas “sewing bugs,” because they sounded as if they were running little sewing machines in the trees on a hot summer night.
