  1. I have a few email correspondents who use the definition in their signatures, one of whom has been doing it for several years. I think she probably started it once our legislature became more concerned with legislating morality (abortion, Ten Commandments on Capitol grounds, etc.) than actual governing.

  3. It’s not in my Miriam Webster dictionary, but the word is clearly needed after the last two years!
