`Truthiness' is named Word of the Year
Practicing catholic and religious educator, Steven Colbert receives an honor given to few. A word he coined on his satirical news comedy show "The Colbert Report" is now going to be found in the dictionary. But what scares me most about this is what the president of Merriam-Webster, John Morse, said about truth. He said:
We're at a point where what constitutes truth is a question on a lot of people's minds, and truth has become up for grabsJohn seems to hit the nail on the head. People are struggling in our society. Where can they find truth if everyone runs around like Puntious Pilot and Neitzsche saying "What is truth?" and never stop to listen for the answer. They seek the truth but show little care for the truth -- as if truth doesn't matter.
