Able, we’d well aim on. I bet on a note. Binomial? Lewd. Ew, Elba!
The requirement was: A palindrome with Elba plus Binomial with an optional second word: bet. A palindrome that uses both Binomial and bet topped an acceptable palindrome that only uses Binomial.

“Thanks for the challenge! Palindromes give us a fun opportunity to practice planning in a setting where each new letter has the power to completely recast one’s previous efforts. Since one has to balance developing a structure with preserving some kind of meaning, it can take forever to get a palindrome to ‘work’ – but it’s incredibly satisfying when it does.”
Choice of Book:
Fisher, Neyman and the Creation of Classical Statistics (E. L. Lehmann 2012, Dordrecht, New York: Springer)
Winner of the March 2014 palindrome contest (rejected post)
Congratulations Caitlin! With consecutive months now of winners using two words (+ Elba), this bodes well for returning to that more severe challenge.
See April contest (first word: fallacy; optional second word: error).
