“It’s only words, but words are all I have…”

Mirriam-Webster keeps a list of the words most commonly looked up HERE.

It’s  an interesting snapshot of our culture.

I assume people are looking up “Socialism” because of Bernie Sanders.  I’m glad they are– it doesn’t mean what Fox News told them it does.

It took me a minute to realize why they were looking up the definition of “marriage.”  Then it hit me.  I can just imagine how many pedantic (it’s on the list) arguments began with the words, “According the the Mirriam-Webster dictionary, ‘marriage’ is defined…”

Fortunately “empathy” and “diversity” are also on the list.  🙂
