2 new words this week

New to me, of course.

“gank”

From Lane’s very sacriligious FB post tonight: To appropriate as one’s own without credit or remuneration. According to Urban Dictionary, a sort of “pinch” or “snag.”

“criticality”

Sonny Perdue is not really as Bubba as NPR (national, not local) would have the rest of the world believe. But they had to replay the whole praying for rain thing last week to intro a story on our “tri-state water war.” During which piece our Guv whipped out a few extra-neous syllables  about “understanding the criticality of how important it is to preserve.” If it’s a word, it shouldn’t oughta be.
