The Gates of Wrath - a rant.

Look, there's no use putting up a sign saying:


GATE IN CONSTANT USE

when it plainly isn't.


I realise that people don't want dirty great big vehicles blocking their entrances, but quite frankly making silly claims like that - especially when the gate is question is DUSTY WITH DISUSE - isn't going to get anyone on their side.

Just saying, okay?

Word To Use Today (but not on a gate): constant. This word comes from the Old French, from the Latin word constāns, standing firm, from constāre, to be steadfast.

Just to be clear, constant means all the time.

Okay?
