In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of Word for the Day.
pellucidity, pellucidness noun
[Latin pellcidus, from pellcre, to shine through : per-, through; see per- + lcre, to shine; see leuk- in Indo-European roots.]
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

At this point I want irrefutable proof one way or the other. SCOTUS let us down. Someone owes us the truth in all this mess.
Making a rare pellucid appearance on FR. Hi everyone!
Hey there. Haven’t seen you in class in AGES.
cue the Welcome Back Kotter intro....
Off for my morning walk. Listening to Tyranny of Cliches...Jonah awaits me. Can’t keep him waiting.
whoa, I had not seen that one. From his own mouth.
Interesting that the Wright saga is off the table, I could give a spit about the sermons, but did he actually accept 150Gs to stop preaching until the election? Remeber, the coverup is always worse than the crime. And from whence did that moola come?
So we all agree that the truth of Obama’s birth is pellucid, if you look at all the evidence: multiple news reports over the years; statements from his step-grandmother; statements from Michelle; statements from himself. But, what do you call the people who refuse to see it? Stupid?
Pellucid - anything horrible. It is a combination of Pelosi and putrid.
“The neighbor’s dog ate a dead squirrel and left a pellucid pile on my front lawn.”
I thought Wright refused the money.
It wasn’t clear to me. Nonetheless, I think it matters that it was even offered.
Pelosi’s House was anything but pellucid.
very very good!
Pelousy is pellucid all right. We can see through her bull. A++
If she stretches her skin anymore, it will be so pellucid that we will see Nancy’s brains. Well, assuming she has any, and isn’t really a zombie impersonator.
Pellucid- those rare moments where Nancy Pelosi briefly snaps out of that liberal dementia she is always wandering around in.
“She is experiencing a pellucid interval”.
Clearly pellucid is a pane.
