I found this on a search engine optimization forum recently:
“Winston Churchill was a drinking, smoking,
gambling womaniser and Hitler a one woman teetotaller.”
That really stopped me in my tracks when I considered the so-called morality of the ruling party in this country. I’m not sure if this is connected but yesterday I was pondering how many wars have been started by atheists. I don’t think very many. Just some random things to consider I suppose.
On the lighter side, here is Merriam-Webster Online’s Top 10 Words of 2004:
7. peloton : noun (1951) : the main body of riders
in a bicycle race
Choice terms all. My particular favorite is #10. #7 is the only one I didn’t know.
