Word For The Day, Monday, 6/24/13
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".
1. a lofty oration or writing in praise of a person or thing; eulogy. 2. formal or elaborate praise
Etymology: 1603, "eulogy, laudation," from Fr. panégyrique (1512), from L. panegyricus "public eulogy," originally an adj., from Gk. panegyrikos (logos) "(a speech) given in a public assembly," from panegyris "public assembly in honor of a god," from pan- "all" (q.v.) + agyris
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. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Most who had bestowed panegryrics on Rubio have since retracted them.

No pushing at the door please!
What’s up, my dear?
panegyric - what passes for mainstream news about Obama...
Obama’s frequent panegyrics are all about himself because he truly believes that he “is the one wee’ve been waiting for”.
Chris Matthews had a famed panegyric
But his praise only gave me an earache
Obama made his leg tingle
And Chrissy ain’t even single
A true socialist can turn a lib queer-ic
and prone to gimble in the wabe.
The whole thread with comments
back from Williamsburg, where we had a very nice weekend. Heading to Houston to visit my bro and his family, with xsbaby, this weekend. Lots of work to get done in between : )
or were you asking if i’d added whats up to the ping list? ; )
true, and disgusting. A+++
Say, the WFTD “pun potential” has been pretty thin of late... just sayin’.
It is very often disappointing to see movies based on fave books, though i have not read that one. A+++
i will keep that in mind, next monday, when it’s my turn again ; )
he does indeed. A+++
He’s still aboard the obams bus isn’t he? he wobbled a few times with one or two of the scandals, but not enough to disembark! A++++
I had not read the book. I agree it was an enjoyable movie. I say that even though I like my zombies slow and plodding, not like these fast ones. I mean if you are dead, you think you’d go slower.
Hey y’all! Busy day here, going to the doc. Saw some Eurotrash in the hotel lobby at breakfast, wearing a tee that said F it, let’s drink.
well, Soother isn’t eurotrash and he’s not too proud to be seen out and about with oddball tshirts ; )
for the first time probably since the election, i watched Hannity on Friday PM, and he had on the black conservatives. it was a great show. Those people need far more exposure and blacks need to see and hear their point of view.
I had very distressing news this AM. One of the black clericals that i know and love, a single mother of one child— well that child is now pregnant. She’s 19 and graduated HS, but got a job waitressing instead of pursuing higher education. Now this. I found it out from my black paralegal. She and i discussed the very sad state of illegitimacy in the black community. it is beyond depressing to me. I was so very sorry to hear this about the clerical that i have known for 25+ yrs. I know the child will be loved and raised by the woman’s daughter, her [the grandmother of the unborn baby] and her own mother. This is not a family of single mothers, Norma herself is from an intact family, but her dad died several years back. Norma was married and divorced from one man, and subsequently got pregnant by this child’s father. He would not marry her, but he and his family have been a constant and supportive presence in this girl’s life. This young lady did not need to look for a daddy figure. Just so sad.
I don’t have shirts with profanity on them. Other than my Obama one big ass mistake one. But that’s implied with a donkey symbol, not spelled out.
Panegyric is just a fancy term for twisted bread. Like fancy breadsticks.
Say a prayer for us, we’re about to embark on a convoy with the 56 t-bird halfway across the state. I’ll be driving here to Breezewood. It’s a black car with no ac and we have the hard top on. Cause this is a permnent move and it needs to go along.
The old saying is the best thing parents can do for a child is love each other.
yoiks! prayers up for yinz.
Glad you enjoyed the trip!
I don’t understand the appeal of books/movies about vampires, werewolves-and especially zombies-maybe it is just me, but I prefer scifi to fantasy when I’m in the mood for the unreal-and only then if it is halfway scientifically feasible. Yeah, I know-I’m boring...
It appears the bloom is off
Of Obama’s overrated rose
As driveby media digs for
Yet more panegyric prose
Give it up, we’ve heard it
Is what many are now saying-
All but the koolaid addicts
Are sick of Carney’s braying
This is 40-year deja vu
The writing is on the wall-
Another narcissist to show
How mobbed-up emperors fall...
In that, it will be a cool drive even without AC-be safe!
I turned on the TV for some news, and there was one of the prosecutors in the Zimmerman case saying something like “as the sound and smell of that gunshot rose in the wet night...blah, blah-from his 16th year-profiled, blah”-if the guy is trying to write poetic prose, it is pretty awful-doesn’t grab my sympathy at all...
And wasn’t Martin 17-not 15, as the “days from his 16th year” suggest?
excellent! A++++ and did you see where the one who REFUSES to lay down for the dirtnap —carter— is saying that the Catholic Church refusal to ordain women is a human rights violation??
i see nothing but race riots coming out of that trial. the defense atty apparently made some ill-considered joke in his opening statement and the prosecutor began his with a quote of some profanity from Zimmerman. i see no good outcome there.
There should be race riots already.on the Statehouse lawn.
This case should never have gone to trial.
The fact that Zimmerman, crossed the pathway, went out to the street, then doubled back to his truck (thereby leaving Martin free and clear) is the only salient fact in the case.
We had some trouble with starting, so we intend to just keep it running. Even when we have to put gas in it. Mileage is not so great in this thing.
I always thought Carter was pretty rabidly anti-Catholic-he even seemed jealous of the respect the Pope had when he-Carter-was pres, and thought that automatically endowed him with that level of respect...
I don’t envy you-when I had that old Blazer, I had to gas it up a couple of times while running-I was towing the contractor’s 12 ft trailer and the battery was low-it was mot fun at all...
It is my sisters who are buying it so they get to pay for the gas
Maybe my take on the Zimmerman/Martin thing may not be all that sympathetic, but I see it as two guys in the wrong place and the wrong time, letting ego and testosterone take control, and one ended up dead-and that really is terrible.
But it gave the supposedly grieving mother a boon market in mementos of her son, like those icons and candles for gangster saints sold in Mexico-and her attorney a chance to be the biggest race-baiter since Jesse Jackson-I think it is a fiasco and an excuse for violence...
Well, that works-just add it to the price of the car. I sold the hotrod El Camino, by the way-the son of my contractor compadre bought it-he’s going to put it on the strip, where it will be happy again....
Good morning. Had my comeuppance at the doctor’s this morning. I have new blood pressure meds yet again. I haven’t been happy with the plan and results, but had to give it a month longer. RME Perhaps, this plan will do the trick.
I have little interest in this trial, but I will say...Zimmerman did not commit murder. It appears to be more like self-defense. Two losers collided, one walked away, the other died. It was inevitable.
Theres an article from a local paper, with the layout of the property, and the timeline.
Its very damning to the prosecutions case.
If I can dig it up, Ill post the link.
That is similar to my take-if the race baiters hadn’t turned it into a “cause” of sorts, it would have gone down with a fine, a suit, some lesser charge and been a harsh lesson about walking with one’s head in a very dark place. Instead, some media whores got ahold of it and we have this mess that is going to cost Florida’s taxpayers a bunch of money...
Thank you-I wonder if any of that will come up?
Camt find the map, here is the police reort.
Bottom line on the map is there is a horizontal street. That reaces a t intersection at a verticaal street.
Between the place where Zimmerman parked was a standard concrete walk, as is common in apt. Complexex(usually has the mailboxes for two sides of the courtyard.
Martin goes down the concrete path, Zimmerman makes it out to the courtyard, and essentially was on a clear path to his home.
Until he doubled back to befin the incident.
I missed the part where he called out TROP for how they treat every woman.
