This is classical pronunciation, not ecclesiastical. The macron is used in the 1962 Latin/English Missal. The Douay-Rheims (1582 and 1609-10) is the product of Catholic scholars who left England for France to escape death under Elizabeth I.
“A News-monger is a Retailer of Rumour, that takes up upon Trust, and sells as cheap as he buys. He deals in a perishable Commodity, that will not keep: for if it be not fresh it lies upon his Hands, and will yield nothing. True or false is all one to him; for Novelty being the Grace of bothe, a Truth grows stale as soon as a Lye...”
— Characters Samuel Butler (d. 1680), English poet and satirist
Sam Johnson standardized spelling in Dictionary of the English Language (1755).
Next Butler quote:
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too.”

“The problem we’re having today is, so many things are being decided from Washington, D.C., and that naturally makes us hate each other, because half of us are going to be mad at any given time, roughly,” [Mark] Meckler said. “And so, if you go back to federalism, I think we can keep the country together.”
“We take off a lot of the heat, cool a lot of the pressure, out of the system by just saying New York’s New York, California’s California, and the conservative states are whatever they want to be,” he explained.
“Federalism is a combined and compound mode of government that combines a general government with regional governments in a single political system, dividing the powers between the two.” Wikipedia
The word comes from the novel, Don Quixote. He is the romantic, impractical hero of Cervantes’ 1605/1615 satirical novel, Don Quixote de la Mancha (in English translation by 1620).
As a type attempting the impossible or holding visionary but impossible ideals, it is in English from the 1670s.
His name literally means “thigh” and also “a cuisse”, which is a piece of armor for the thigh.
The word in Modern Spanish is quijote and derives from Latin coxa meaning hip.
It is alleged that quixotic is one of the most beautiful words in the English language. It combines the beautiful sounds of q, x, and k.
“The 94% complete, billion-dollar Mountain Valley Pipeline, an unexpected addition which was green lighted, has been mired in a lengthy permitting process for years.
“It was immediately cheered by West Virginia lawmakers who have long touted the project’s expected economic benefits.
“The pipeline is projected to create 2,500 construction jobs, $40 million in new tax revenue for West Virginia, $10 million in new tax revenue for Virginia and up to $250 million in royalties for West Virginia landowners.”
Must be approved by Congress.
Dives is a Latin name meaning “rich man.”
We spell Mardocheus as Mordecai. Robert is referring to the Book of Esther. If read, the citation below spades a clump of Old Testament literary forms. I shocked a Catholic by mentioning literary forms. “No, it’s the word of God.” Be smarter.
“Although the Book of Esther was questioned by some early Christians, even St. Jerome, the whole book, including the Greek additions, was included in the canon of Scripture by the Council of Trent.”
The way to tutor a gifted child is to enter into his or her world. For more than two years, Alexander has been employed to tutor me on this subject, and he has been very patient.

Corpus omne perseverare in statu suo quiescendi vel movendi uniformiter in directum, nisi quatenus a viribus impressis cogitur statum illum mutare.
“Every body preserves its state of rest or uniform movement in a straight line unless forced to change that state by forces impressed upon it.”
Isaac Newton (b. 1643, d. 1727)
Before 1700, scientific publications were primarily written in Latin.
In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton wrote his book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, explaining the laws of motion and gravity, in Latin.

The first English translation appeared the year after he died. Does that mean everyone was reading Latin?
At King Edward VI Grammar School, Shakespeare (d. 1616) learned to read Latin, and his familiarity with the drama of Plautus appears in The Comedy of Errors, which shows that Shakespeare could read it when he wanted to. There is no evidence to suggest he could read Greek.

Xi Van Fleet spoke yesterday.
Let’s hear from another lady born under communism.
Spartz, née Kulheyko, R-IN, born Nosivka, Chernihiv Oblast, USSR, now Ukraine; BSc/MBA Kyiv National Economic University; USA citizen 2006; Master of Accountancy, Indiana University – Purdue.
BlackRock is an American multi-national investment company, the largest, their assets $9.74 trillion, and our debts $31.46 trillion.
The U.S. Supreme backs her up this year again. “The Idaho couple, who acquired the parcel of land in 2004, was told that they could not begin construction because their property included wetlands that were federally protected. The EPA warned them that they had to relinquish the property and restore it to its natural state or face fines of $40,000 per day.”
Rupert Brooke, described as ‘the handsomest young man in England’ by W. B. Yeats, “sailed with the British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force on 28 February 1915 but developed a severe gastroenteritis whilst stationed in Egypt followed by streptococcal sepsis from an infected mosquito bite.
“French surgeons carried out two operations to drain the abscess, but he died of septicemia at 4:46 pm on 23 April 1915, on the French hospital ship Duguay-Trouin, moored in a bay off the Greek island of Skyros in the Aegean Sea, while on his way to the landings at Gallipoli.
“As the expeditionary force had orders to depart immediately, Brooke was buried at 11 pm in an olive grove on Skyros. The site was chosen by his close friend, William Denis Browne, who wrote of Brooke’s death:
“‘I sat with Rupert. At 4 o’clock he became weaker, and at 4:46 he died, with the sun shining all round his cabin, and the cool sea breeze blowing through the door and the shaded windows. No one could have wished for a quieter or a calmer end than in that lovely bay, shielded by the mountains and fragrant with sage and thyme.’”

If you stop to find out what your wages will be
And how they will clothe and feed you,
Willie, my son, don't you go on the Sea,
For the Sea will never need you.
If you ask for the reason of every command,
And argue with people about you,
Willie, my son, don't you go on the Land,
For the Land will do better without you.
If you stop to consider the work you have done
And to boast what your labour is worth,
Angels may come for you, Willie, my son,
But you’ll never be wanted on Earth!
As a child of the 50s and even the 60s, I can attest to this: a society strictly bound by rules of etiquette and behavior produces children who are free. Outside of home and school we were free to do what we wanted, unsupervised, and ran until dinner tolled and order was restored, until the next day at about 3, and all day on weekends, outside of team sports, but I think my sisters felt the way his cousin did.
To give some typical example, we lived about 10 blocks from Willie Mays in San Francisco. Hoping to see him outside, I rode my bicycle by his house frequently, and one day I was riding with my sister and another boy and said, “Why don’t we ring his doorbell and see if he is home?”
I rang the doorbell, and his maid answered. I asked, “Can we see Willie Mays?” She said, “I’m so sorry. He’s not home.” I knew she was telling the truth because I could see the entire foyer and the stairs leading to the second floor. He could hear us and would have come to the door and greeted three little kids.
My mother’s response to the untold escapade would have been, “That’s nice. If you’re hungry, you can have a piece of bread. Dinner’s at 6.”
What Xi Van Fleet says about Marxism is what is behind the LGBT++++++ program. Separate children from their parents. School districts push gender ideology and keep it secret from parents. School districts allow books with sexual content in school libraries, and the books are discovered only when children tell their parents. Parents object at school board meetings and are silenced. The goals of Marxism are rampant.

"Let me say at once that owing to the casualties in the war and various other things, there were very few people to elect. It's a pity you couldn't be here in the springtime when that tree there wouldn't look sad, but it'd be covered with leaves, you see. It would look old but not sad. And these, with all the limes obviously, however old they are, they're a lovely green in spring. I suppose. I have actually, in some simple-minded form of longing, actually would like to. I should've liked to be be able to make contact with a tree and find out what it feels about things. I first began to seriously invent languages about when I was 13 or 14. I've never stopped really."

He is speaking perfect English. When Tolkien mutters something, it automatically becomes an official part of the Oxford Dictionary.
T0lkien initially read classics but changed his course in 1913 to English language and literature and graduated Oxford in 1915 with first-class honors.
Nevertheless, he refused vernacular at Mass and loudly responded in Latin. We know the English recusants. Looking back, we can say Tolkien is the Latin recusant.
This method is good for those nasty national exams of about one minute per question, the section without a calculator. “Because there are 12 reports to compile each month, the total number of reports in a year is the zenzic of 12.” The square root of 144 is a perfect square, thus no need for the shortcut.

A chicken walks into a library clucking, “Book book book.”
He walks over to the main desk, looks up, and says, “Book book book.”
After a bit of confusion, the librarian gives him a few books. The chicken quietly takes them and walks out.
The next day, the chicken comes back. He places the books the librarian had given him on the desk and says, “Book book book.” The librarian gives him three new books, and the chicken walks out.
This goes on for a week. Every day, the chicken comes in, returns the previous day’s books, and gets three new ones. “Book book book” is all he ever says.
Eventually, the librarian can’t contain his curiosity and decides to follow the chicken.
He keeps his distance as the chicken, carrying that day’s books, walks into the woods toward a local swamp. The chicken reaches the swamp and finds a frog sitting on a lily pad. He holds up the books for the frog to see and says, “Book book book!”
The frog turns away, shakes his head, and says, “Reddit. Reddit. Reddit.”

What does the Latin word reddere mean? It is a verb meaning, “to pay back or render.” The verb in its different conjugations appears in the 1962 Latin/English Missal.
From a contributor on reddit.com: “Also, there are some unintentional but interesting Latin meanings to the word. It turns out, the Latin meaning is ‘to submit for consideration or approval,’ as if it were typed on proverbial stone ages ago.”
Headline: Joe Biden imposing new energy requirements for mobile homes which will raise housing costs. https://americandigest.com/joe-biden-imposing-new-energy-requirements-for-mobile-homes-which-will-raise-housing-costs/?
Biden tells a New Hampshire crowd of ‘having had a house burn down with my wife in it …’ The Associated Press reports, it was a minor kitchen fire, with no damage visible from outside.
He talks about a chat with an Amtrak conductor in his seventh year as vice president, when the guy retired 15 years before Biden became V.P. and was dead by the year of the tale.
He claims he was offered a job by an Idaho lumber company; they have no record. He claims he ‘used to drive’ an 18-wheeler — it didn’t happen.
He says he visited Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue after the 2018 massacre and spoke to the rabbi, when the synagogue says he’s never even been there.
He exaggerates, as when he chats with Gold Star families about his late son Beau as if he’d died in action, rather than of brain cancer.
He insists the border surge is ‘seasonal’.
He calls his disastrous Afghan withdrawal a ‘success’ while falsely claiming his generals didn’t object.
Then there is Hunter.
Ninth Circuit reverses ruling that immigration laws are ‘discriminatory’
“The case arose when Gustavo Carrillo-Lopez sued to cancel his deportation under a 1950s law that he said was discriminatory against him as a Mexican.
“Carillo-Lopez was deported in 1999 and again in 2012, the second time after [he] was convicted on a drug felony and misdemeanor spousal-abuse.
“He re-entered the country again and was charged with drug trafficking in 2019, and in 2020 illegal entry with enhancements charges were added because of his previous criminal record.”
In a unanimous opinion, Judge Ikuta wrote, “…a legislature has no duty ‘to purge its predecessor’s allegedly discriminatory intent’.”
San Francisco’s Narrative Magazine is a platform that once received a short story (see More tab) and possibly a poem for a contest. Today, the magazine sent out an email with the headline, “Stand Up to Book Banning”. The political slogan was attached to winners’ photos in the magazine’s high school writing contests, 2015-2023, which came with prize monies.
First, we recognize the slant when people use the words book banning, words that are a veneer for sexual content.
Second, we know what is meant by “underserved communities,” as one winner said, “I am a descendant of Aztec kings.”
“Just curious, young man, did you do a 23and me, or are you boasting?”
Not one white boy is among those pictured. All kinds of people write good stories, but ethnicity, which is immaterial, is now a barrier.
This degradation in the mainstream publishing world is widespread and very uncatholic, described by powerthesaurus.org as, “of or associated with a province; limited or below average in number or quantity or magnitude or extent; not wide; not open or affording passage or access.”
Just look up book agents and find out. What you will find in my English category are classic short stories and poems, and they are what I have assigned to students.
