What is a pangram?

answer to yesterday's question
According to Inuit legend, Sedna was a beautiful girl who was carried off by a raven to be its bride. When Sedna's father came to rescue her in his kayak, the raven stirred up the sea in a terrible storm to prevent father and daughter from escaping. Terrified of the raging waters, Sedna's dad dumped his daughter overboard in an effort to placate the angry raven. Sedna tried to hold on to the side of the boat, but her treacherous father pounded at her fingers with his paddle to make her let go. Her fingers, frozen by the icy waters, soon cracked off; and the blood that spilled from them turned into seals, whales, walruses, and other arctic sea mammals. Sedna became the goddess of the sea, benevolent and terrible-- although her fury against men brings violent waters, she also provides a bounty of food for tribes whose shamans dare the ocean to swim down and comb her long, tangled hair. A so-called 'tenth planet' far beyond Pluto was recently named for the Inuit sea goddess.
