Ruminations from a writer in sight of the Blue Ridge.

To the anonymous writer of the rebuttal re "enormity," apologies. I can't seem to get your comment posted, but would like to reply by saying that you must be right. We have 4 dictionaries in our house, but all are over 10 years old. Probably the most important part of this usage is that everyone seems to understand what the speaker really means. That's what counts.
