Notoriety

A critic wrote: "Burgess gained notoriety with his wildly popular children's books." Another oft-abused word, notoriety has somehow become a good thing. But can't you hear the notorious in notoriety? There are all kinds of fame; notoriety is one of the bad kinds, just down the pike from infamy. This is a word best reserved for describing the world's scoundrels.
