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".
divulse \dahy-VUHLS\, verb
To tear away or apart.
A perforation having been so made, it is safer to divulse the opening rather than to enlarge it by cutting in order to avoid the possibility of opening a blood vessel in an inaccessible region.
-- Eugene Fuller, M.D., The Journal of the American Medical Association
Even if you are the kooper of the winkel over measure never lost a license. Nor a duckindonche divulse from bath and breakfast.
-- James Joyce, Finnegans Wake
Divulse comes from the Latin root vellere meaning "plucked". The prefix di- is a variation of dis- before the letter v meaning "apart" or "away", as in disown.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Pa has a voter ID law set to take effect this fall. Of course the usual suspects are trying to get the courts to stop it. The county executive in PGH said that it would take millions of dollars to train poll workers.
i can’t imagine any Rom scandal is possible, i don’t rule out Obams bombing the hell out of someone to look like a tough guy though.
How sad. The kitty had to divulse itself from its new friend:
saw on the twit that the Sup Ct might issue decisions next week beyond monday, perhaps on tues and weds as well. informed speculation but still speculative...
i was almost late, xshub was sweating it! there was bad traffic on the parkway!
Oh that’s a sweet story. I don’t think my cat would have gone for a bird nestling on his back. I’m glad the enviros weren’t all over her about how a common person would not and should not even try to take care of a wild animal. A+ for you.
Those are just very small trees. ;-)
it was down....my account is working right now.
That’s a very beautiful chapel.
Congratulations on your anniversary to you and xshub.
Thanks, it was a cool place to get married.
if i’d known ya, you coulda been ring bearer ; )
There was an article yesterday, and several others about Obama making race a factor in the campaign.
Clinton will let that set, then repudiate it, because they did OT t him in aught eight.
They painted him as racist as well.
The Black Walter Mondale.
Late? Prior to getting married....?
It is getting interesting politically, isn’t it?
How many in Obama’s charmed circle
Will the latest scandal take down?
Will revelations from those divulsed
Deprive Louis Obama of his crown?
If he weren’t so effete and snobbish
And didn’t openly show disdain
For the very people who can’t wait
To toss him into the political rain
No matter which disgruntled henchman
Eventually turns and drops the dime
Obama won’t play daily golf games-
Seeking work will take too much time...
Twitter is working for me again. I should have just used my phone, since I heard that stayed up.
