Grappling with Survival

The folks at Dictionary.com announced this week that the word of the year for 2019 is ‘existential,’ as in existential threat—something that puts the nation at great risk, such as, you know, wild horses and burros.

Actually, the subject was not included in the list of examples, but climate change, gun violence and the Trump administration were, suggesting that the site is run not by wild horse enthusiasts, but by left-wing ideologues.  Butt sex, baby murder and open borders didn’t make the cut.

Oh wait…the runner-up word was ‘nonbinary.’  That removes all doubt.
