http://www.grammarphobia.com/qa is a site I visit on occassion for my own education. The Q & A list is just one feature. #32 I sought because I saw a poster on this board use the phrase in question. #33 is actually a question I sent to the author by e-mail and got a personal response, I bought her "Woe is I jr" for my daughter's english studies, and really even an adult might find something useful in it.

We used to have a poster that would launch a word of the week, or some other etymology related topic.

English is an evolving language, the only ones not evolving are the dead languages. One died last year as the last person speaking it croaked.

btw, # 32 was the phrase 'I couldn't care less' vs 'I could care less' for meaning you don't care

the answer surprised me, they are equal. I would have argued with the teacher or professor about that, but as I said the language evolves.

What’s the Difference Between Cancer and Donald Trump?

So-called “free market" or "unregulated capitalism” is really nothing more than the cancer-stage of capitalism. And that uninhibited cancerous growth has spread, so that now even our political system is infected with the cancer of corporatism.

Donald Trump’s candidacy is an example of how our political system is being eaten alive by the cancer-stage of capitalism.
