Palindromist Barry Duncan has sent us an Oscar palindrome with the following note:

“I saw the film ‘Argo’ in November and wrote the attached palindrome. Though I briefly considered writing a palindrome about each of the “Best Picture” nominees, I never got around to it. But now it looks like I picked the right film to celebrate backward and forward.”

“Argo” won the Oscar for Best Picture at the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 24.
