grin and what?

I had to call the police, as I was harrassed by A-hole Guy yet again.  Which, of course, sent me into a CFS stress spiral.  I'll write about it more later.  But, you can see how toxic is this area.  I have to take care, again, that my dog is not shot.

I must cacel plan to make batch of 'cornbread'.  Must relax and zone out.  Hopeful can pull off plan for tomorrow.

Reminder, one was killed and five injured - around the corner - which probably involved tenants og A-hole Guy.  Idiots.

Jamie Lee Curtis: “Merriam-Webster just officially recognized ‘irregardless’ as a word”

Scream Queen and Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter on Monday to share with her followers that Merriam-Webster added the word “irregardless” to its dictionary. “In case you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Merriam-Webster just officially recognized “irregardless” as a word,” she wrote. Clearly the actress does not agree with the decision with many on social media sharing similar sentiments. Others however argued that “irregardless” is a word and that “complaining is tired at best and elitist at worst.”

[Merriam-Webster answers your Frequently Asked Questions About Irregardless]Is irregardless a word?
Yes. It may not be a word that you like, or a word that you would use in a term paper, but irregardless certainly is a word. It has been in use for well over 200 years, employed by a large number of people across a wide geographic range and with a consistent meaning. That is why we, and well-nigh every other dictionary of modern English, define this word.

Does irregardless mean the same thing as regardless?
Yes. We define irregardless as "regardless." Many people find irregardless to be a nonsensical word, as the ir- prefix usually functions to indicates negation; however, in this case it appears to function as an intensifier. Similar ir- words, while rare, do exist in English, including irremediless ("remediless"), irresistless ("resistless") and irrelentlessly ("relentlessly).

Anti-progressivism. Anti-gay. Anti-woman. Anti-white / anti-BLACK. Anti-environment. Anti-imagination. Anti-peace and quiet. So petty-competitive that people are dying over shoes, words, fireworks. So many buy into the messaging, and do not see the divide-and conquer which is playing them - coming from capitalism, television, music, politicians, hate-mongers, billionaires, China - and even pollution - in addition to racism. The troublemakers are so driven to hate that they themselves have become functions of the same racism they mean to destroy.
