I am resigned, although I have yet to make the official transition.
I have finally, irrevocably, inexorably decided that I cannot stem the tide of the use of “to raise” in reference to human beings. Much like the law of chastity, the use of “to rear” in reference to humans versus the use of “to raise” in reference to animals was beaten into my head from an early age and, well…
…I give up.
But I swear, they’ll have to waterboard me before I’ll give into “alright.”
