Topic: Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.

You all went pretty deep here, and I like it. I do wonder what JFK would say if he saw the state of the United States today.
Topic: cushy job
Posted: Sunday, February 14, 2016 7:47:37 PM
I would suppose that there are other cushy jobs beside government jobs, but I cannot really think of any. The rest of us have to work & work hard for our living.

I personally think the whole thing was made up. I have heard it all before, but stated with more eloquence.

Off subject here: Just want to comment that I love your signature, OP!

It is amazing to me that SO much music could reside in one person. What a universe we live in!
Topic: What is "a couple of rounds" ?

Ha! I had no idea that is what it meant!
Topic: Any changes in English.

Thank you, Romany. Your response is to the point and enlightening.

"But English NEVER STOPS changing...each of us older posters remembers words that were used and things that were said when we were kids that are no longer used. And we use words and phrases which would have had no meaning to us when we were youngsters."

So true. People change and their language changes.
Topic: Hubris

Thank you for the examples of the word hubris. I have never used it in everyday language, but can now see that the word fits quite a few situations, especially in an election year!
Topic: a vs an

This just brings home to me how very, very long it has been since freshman English 101! Thank you all for the refresher!
