That's not an anagram. That's a palindrome.

@Merry Andrew,
Isn't every palindrome also an anagram?

Only in America, where for some unknown reason they write the month first.

For the rest of the (english speaking) world its 02012010.

@Merry Andrew,

upon further reflection, a palindrome ain't an anagram after all...

No, it's a date to stay in the mammals of history..

@Region Philbis,
I assume you agree that "rats live" is an anagram of "evil star"...

So why wouldn't "madam, I'm Adam" be an anagram of "madam, I'm Adam"

It's the same thing.

A palindrome is a special case of an anagram.

@ebrown p,

special case?

an anagram is a word/phrase whose letters form a different word/phrase, not the same word/phrase...

@ebrown p,
Totally wrong.

An anagram is a random jumbling of letters. A palindrome is a quite structured reversal of letters. "Rats live" is not an anagram. "Star vile" would be an anagram for either "rats live" or "evil star."

In no way is a palindrome a "special case of an anagram."
