Matters of Care, Pt. II

The English language continues to astound. How is it that "capitulate" and "recapitulate" have come to mean such different things? And how is that it is actually the latter which is more related to the original Latin root, capitulum? What a wondrous and enigmatic language.

Matters of Care

I have come to think it very strange that the words "caregiver" and "caretaker" mean essentially the same thing.

UPDATE: Also, my fiancee, while flipping through the channels, declared that there was "nothing good on." Paradoxically, since she was looking for something really trashy to unwind to, she actually meant there was "nothing bad on." Can the English language survive these assaults?
