Delusional skeptic, reveling in a multiple-personality disorder. Alternating between a 21st-century blogger, a 3rd-century BC Carthagenian general, a 5th-century BC druid, a 23rd-century BC Beaker-people trader, a 20th-century Estonian freedom-fighter, a time-traveler, and a sheepdog in Wyoming.
This posting isn't about Hurricane Ike, though that's certainly newsworthy. No, this is about MSNBC's command of the English language in making the statement that some people "... could face certain death".
Really? Is that the same as "... certainly facing a possible death"?
To which the answer is : Yes, for sure it's perchance an inevitable possibility. C'mon, MSNBC. This is why the Brits laugh at us.
