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.
tr.v. limned, limn·ing (lmnng), limns
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. ;-)

All Souls Day.....Class is in session.
good morning! dreary and dull outside, but it’s sunny and bright in the classroom.
Is there no limnit to your vocabulary?
And thats the NYTimes, not the Wash Times.
Troubled Start for Health Law Has Democrats Feeling Anxious
It appeared that the White House would have to do more to reassure Democrats who emerged from the 16-day government shutdown confident of their political fortunes, only to see Republicans roar back on a wave of anger over the health care law. People are anxious, said Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat. I dont think theres confidence by anyone in the room, said Senator Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat up for re-election next year, as he emerged from the closed-door meeting in the Capitol. /toldjaso ;-)
Well, I know it’s bright where I sit ;) lol
"6 ENROLLEES ON FIRST DAY?
'SNL' SKIT CORRECTLY PREDICTED
I think it was probably 9. They just stood it on it’s head because thats what they do with Logic.
Some call Banksy’s limns art, many call it vandalism.
There is a nasty campaign for DA here in my namesake county. The Dem has been attacking the Rep on his corruption. He is a convicted drunk driver who when stopped in this county for it the sheriff covered it up because he was an assistant DA. I will be voting Dem for the first time in my life on Tuesday.
I suspect it’s graffiti. LOL
I thought today was all saints day, tomorrow all souls day.
I attempted to limn the Obamacare situation to some Liberal coworkers, but they convinced that the government would never do us wrong.
The herd of limnings hurtled off the cliff and plopped into the ocean like hundreds of furry Alka Seltzer tablets.
*sigh*.... I would say, a personal failing, is less than a political one. While I do disagree with people, theoretically taking other peoples lives in their own hands by being on the roads hammered, and I am sure you’ve seen your share of those types of accidents, I disagree with notion of defining drunk down, to where 2 glasses of wine over a dinner puts you,
OVER the limit and under arrest. YOU WILL BE CAUGHT!!!!!!!!!
AmeriKa at its finest.
Obamacare, how doth I limn?
‘tis a perfect depiction of himn
All sizzle and no steak
Disaster in its wake
The democrats’ future is dimn
Isn’t there a word used in the legal profession that is the root or is very similar to ‘limn’?
There is no limns to the democrat’s greed, avarice, and lust for power.....
While, IMO most of the Graffiti called ‘art’, is an attempt to legitimize a subculture, from what I’ve seen I would slide him into the Art category.
Last year we went to the Whitney Museum.
My youngest, after about 3 floors, pulls my wife down close and says...
“Mommy, there are a lot of scribbles in here”.
Art Linkletter would have been proud.
oh, sheriff’s deputies found him so drunk on our roads that he was passed out...more than once..when they got him awake he declared “do you know WHO I am...” and sure enough the sheriff had him driven home and did not make an arrest. The DA at the time, who is now our judge, fired him when he found out. Now the guy wants the top job. I don’t want him at all. The conviction happened in PA and he never told the DA about it when he was hired. It all came out during the primaries. 3 way primary, so he squeaked by. I pray the general election will end his aspirations.
the Dem is sending out all kinds of reminders and the drunk’s mother keeps sending out letters saying how wonderful her little boy is. RME
Now THAT I can see.
I cannot get why they would cover something like that up at risk to their own careers.
LOL good one. A+++
The sheriff sent out letters saying that he had “fire in his belly” for the DA job...........my comeback was “that’s firewater in the belly and no thanks”.
I love to trot this out to the class every so often.
Artist Carl Andre
But Wait, there's MORE!
And that's the end to the above story, we were upstairs and there were a couple dozen tiles on the floor, and my daughter got grabbed by the security guards, because she was about to walk on the 'sculpture' LMAO.
If Andre qualifies,Banksy's a no brainer ; -)

sounds right.......gotta go get ready for mass. will hang my head in shame.
Less creative than kids playing with 2x4 blocks like I had when we were kids. Ugh.
Limn and lemn soda pop.
Motion in limine. Literally means at the start. Motions made befire a trial starts.
As horrid as the drunk sounds, could he possibly be worse than any democrat on any day?
I love those cookies!
That’s the word! Thanks!
Damn straight! Churchill had alcohol in his system at all times. ;-)
It's not really a policy position.
It's the GOP's fault for nominating him.
It's not like it will tip the balance. So I agree with Ti.
If a 6 year old could reproduce something similar without supervision, it’s not art.
Especially, after repetition, see my other posts above.
Look, If Renoir....had one day had a wild hair, and produced. Jackson Pollock, i might be inclined to agree that the piece was art.
Stacking pieces of wood, or laying tile on a floor...is not art.
Renoir wasn't that great. The reason he painted that way is because he needed glasses.
Jonha makes a good point here:
If Obama were a chess master or even a fairly adept checkers novice he would have known that when youre not ready to do something incredibly important, its best to buy time. He could have traded a delay (three months? six months?) for some major budget concessions, maybe even lifting the sequester. Perhaps his base wouldn’t have liked it, but he could have easily spun the compromise as a necessity given how irrational and extreme the GOP was being.
Publicly hed say he was paying a ransom to kidnappers and hostage takers. Hed denounce Republicans for delaying precious insurance coverage for sick kids and frail oldsters just to score partisan and ideological points.
But privately, ah, privately, the master strategist would be stroking his proverbial white cat or, in reality, his hypoallergenic black dog while breathing a sigh of relief that he bought himself some time to fix his woefully mangled health-care reform.
