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 of the day; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Good Morning Students. Welcome to class!
Class is now in session. The rules are simple; you get a grade if you use the WFTD in a sentence, haiku, limerick, or quatrain. You get a "+" if you make a link, or make the teacher laugh, or you offer the appropriate bribes. I hold the grade book; the whip and chair.
"What is on trial here is whether Judge Charles Norgle has the courage to allow the facts to come out after 247 years of slavery and dehumanization," said Lionel Jean-Baptiste, an Evanston, Ill., lawyer representing Toomey.
No, what is on trial here is the "victims" of the world who are demanding payment for something that no longer exists in this country, but still does in others. There is not one living person in America who was a slave. Reparations do not belong here, should never be done here, and if heaven forbid ever come to pass, will rend this country right down the middle.
Should the cowards cave and give viability to this asinine cause of the professional victims, I will not pay. This movement, brought by the "leaders of the black community" are doing nothing to help race relations in this country, in fact, they are making sure that racial tensions are inviolate(2); never to be healed.
I firmly believe that if reparations are ever enacted there will be a second civil war on American soil. But perhaps that is just my cynical nature coming out, but I really don't think so.
Racial tensions rise
