Headline Violence: a rant.

 A recent headline on AOL:

Police urged to prioritise violence against women

Well, there's no doubt that people have some odd and wicked beliefs. 

But, all the same, I really don't think that anyone in any official capacity did recommend violence against women.

So things, you know, could be worse.

Word To Use Today: violence. This word comes from the Latin violentus, which means violent, but it came to us through the word violentia, which means impetuosity. The Latin word vīs means strength.
