"By 3 pm, her day turned to private meetings and dinners and that was all I could cover." This means it was fundraising time. I'm not faulting her at all on this, those are the rules of the game as currently written.

I'm going to guess it will be a little out of my budget.

He was advancing with what if could be if used properly, deadly weapons and asked to stop. I see nothing wrong here. And further, if this is wrong, who the fuck would ever want to be a police officer.
Dec 24, 2015 tedb310 commented on Words that Need to Die in 2016.
I would like to add my own personal hated word to this list: Solutions. This word has become very trendy in corporate America to state what business offer. For example, a construction company might offer "building solutions", it is especially popular among companies that underwrite on NPR. What I don't like is that language is supposed to convey information, thoughts, ideas and in general meaning. The use of this word of late is to intentionally be ambiguous. A company providing "transportation solutions" could be building cars, or maybe busses, or roads or nothing. They could be a design firm. I just hate the intentional fuzziness.
Sep 30, 2015 tedb310 commented on Asked and Answered: Why Do Seattle's Sidewalk Clocks Mark Four with "IIII" Instead of "IV"?.
When I was in elementary school (late 60's) I was taught that in Roman numerals both IIII and IV were acceptable ways to express 4.
