"It is the 'intransigence' of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Il, that led to the current situation, [Bush] said."
And then I realized that no word I knew would fit there. Not, say, "intransience". So I looked it up and it turns out that "intransigence" is a real word.
I was just taught a *real* word by Bush. The guy SNL made fun of.
I've apparently misunderestimated him. I'm going to go read a book now in penance.
Also, there's a bit of a war going on about fairy tales in beethatbumbles's journal because I can't see why anyone would get worked up over perceived sexism in fairy tales. I'll write more on that later.
