The End

It's official. English speaking civilization is over in the United States.

Linguistic conservatives and right-thinking people everywhere have increasingly become concerned with the trend towards usings "begs the question" to mean "invites the question" rather than its correct, proper, and divinely ordained meaning of "presumes that which it purports to prove."

From Daniel Gross's New York Times (!) story this morning
That begs a question: When housing is the biggest single expenditure for most Americans, and when half of the nation is fretting about a housing bubble and the other half is logging on to, how can inflation remain tame?
I weep for our country.
