Word For The Day, Monday, 10/28/13
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. an official license to print or publish a book, pamphlet, etc., especially a license issued by a censor of the Roman Catholic Church. Compare nihil obstat. 2. sanction or approval; support: Our plan has the company president's imprimatur.
Etymology: Origin: 163040; < Neo-Latin: let it be printed, Latin: let it be made by pressing upon (something); see impress1
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.
Big Man gives his imprimatur of another BIG MAN.

No pushing at the door please!
If Professor Higgins from “My Fair Lady” would start a business doing what he did for Miss Doolittle,
would he be a “Im Prim ateur”?
i am going to have to let that simmer a bit... ; ) A+++
I’m surprised that King Obama hasn’t used the FCC to cancel the imprimatur for Fox News to broadcast.
maybe because, as some freepers suggest, fox has moved a bit left! A+++
I admit it was quite a stretch...
Mom always said I was born too early to be either useful or interesting. Im prima tur!
You mean those Chaldeans of Ur were primatur too?
bless ur heart A+++ ; )
CIC went cerebral there for a minute!
Oh! Like a party! a cerebralation.
and i changed you from CYC to CIC, you are eminently more qualified than the guy who has that title now!
Had Ben Franklin and many other great patriots eschewed imprimatur, We might not exist as the republic we have today.
I’m just a CIC trapped in the body of a CYC. (snip, snip, clip, clip, “Not too close there, mate!”, stitch, pucker, stitch, stitch) and I’m bock! Bock? Bock? What have you done to CYC?!
MAJOR SCREWUP! I meant "Had Ben Franklin and many other great patriots NOT eschewed imprimatur, We might not exist as the republic we have today.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
