Quandary Resolution 4796
niggler, sequela, fustigate, logomachy

Dr. Bernard Zweig, the niggler, should have been fired from this school's faculty years ago, when a heated discussion he had with James Herbert in the cafeteria, about whether the concept of "culture" was etic or emic,  escalated into a full-scale logomachy in which Dr. Zweig started fustigating Mr. Herbert with a spoon- but the sequela of that incident was that Dr. Zweig could not be fired because nobody could replace him.
