Hi readers. I’m thinking terrible tragedies only involve killing 300 or more unsuspecting travelers. But wossname’s come right out and strongly implied the 295 killed in the Ukraine “might be a terrible tragedy“.
I really hate to see anyone messing around with the English language this way. If the word “might” can be placed in a sentence ahead of “be a terrible tragedy” the terms of engagement need to be defined for the purposes of clarity.
Hells bells readers. You know me. I’m not pickypickypicky about this sort of thing. If one policician, or 295 regular normal people, or some specified number of a particular ethnic group is what’s required to make a terrible tragedy it’s no affair of mine. But planners need to know what the hell is needed. Who the hell wants to know about non-terrible tragedies? Which will almost certainly happen now, thanks to this ambiguity created by the wossname, President of the US.
What the hell is the matter with these people?
