Olympics or Olympiad?

Just a query.

Way back when I was in high school we were taught that the Olympiad was the four year period between the Olympic games. Nowadays the two seem to mean the same thing. Not a big deal, really. Just wondering if anyone else had the same question.

This is getting beyond ridiculous.

Listening to the chatter following Hillary's speech in Michigan one could get the idea that Hillary Clinton has never thought or said or done anything that couldn't first be attributed to someone else. It's nothing short of amazing that she's still allowed to be credited with giving birth to Chelsea, for now anyway.

Another reason to vote for Hillary:

After Hillary is elected we will no longer be subjected to Trump spokestwit Katrina Pierson.

Can't help hearing what was said today.

The mental pictures are still too damned vivid, and chillingly so. High school and college memories shouldnít include the assassinations of JFK and Bobby and Dr. King, but there they are. There was the murder of Malcolm X, the shooting of George Wallace, the blessedly failed attempts against Gerald Ford, the near-assassination of Reagan. With the election of Barack Obama, threats against the President and his family multiplied exponentially and have continued apace.

And Donald Trump says his remark about the 2nd Amendment was a joke, that the clumsily veiled suggestion to murder Hillary Clinton was a joke. Well, too many memories donít let us hear any joking in those remarks. But what is evoked is yet one more memory ó that Charles Manson didnít kill anyone, either.
