Tuesday's Word

scurrilous* \'sker-e-les, 'ske-re-\ adj 1 a : using or given to coarse language b : vulgar and evil <~scurrilous imposters who used a religious exterior to rob poor people -Edwin Benson> 2 : containing obscenities or coarse abuse - scur-ri-lous-ly adv - scur-ri-lous-ness n

~, as in "Be quiet over there ~ dogs," Sen. Kennedy-jokingly berating judiciary colleagues for groaning when he was allowed two extra minutes at Alito's confirmation hearing.

This blog wants to know which party uses religion as a vehicle to power? Which man of questionable intellect and feigned piety is taking us to Hell? Who has lost all moral authority?

This week's Word comes by way of lifelong friend Johnny Prit who lives in Republica Dominicana with his lovely wife Carmen! John should blog; his life has been interesting. I recall once in college when the professor, Jane Smith, suggested a writing assignment about Big John. He tried to grab a fish from an aquarium and impaled his thumb on the fish's dorsal spines.

John, you are famous; this is an international publication! Your family will be proud. Soon there will be a book, then a movie/DVD, and many young women will seek our autographs! Perhaps, even women in the sciences!
