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.
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.

Objections? You whiner!”
Our Leader is ruling by diktat
Yours says “Wendy.”
Mine says “Welcome to Jamaica, mon, have a nice day.”
I seem to remember a joke about a diktat; the punchline was something along the lines of “It doesn’t say ‘Wendy’ it says ‘Welcome to Maui, have a nice day’”.
Hey! Don’t I get a grade, or (at least) acknowledgement for being first in class?
