Bible Verse Of The Week
Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
Matthew 20: 17-19 NIV
Word Of The Week
[ kawr-i-juh-buhl, kor- ]
adjective - subject to being revised, improved or made more accurate: a corrigible theory.
First, policy decisions demand closure, conclusiveness, and certainty. By contrast, science is by its nature cautious, contingent, and corrigible.
DAVID MURRAY, JOEL SCHWARTZ, AND S. ROBERT LICHTER, "HOW SCIENCE IS HANDLED IN THE NEWS," "CONSUMERS' RESEARCH MAGAZINE, JULY 2001
It is curious that corrigible “subject to being revised, improved, or made more accurate” is much less common than its opposite, incorrigible. Corrigible ultimately comes from Medieval Latin corrigiblis, a derivative of Latin corrigere “to correct, amend, improve, rectify.” Corrigibilis does not occur in classical Latin, but incorrigibilis occurs in Seneca, the first-century a.d. Roman philosopher and man of letters. Corrigible entered English in the 15th century.

Joke of the Week
If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, and dry cleaners depressed?
Laundry workers could decrease, eventually becoming depressed and depleted! Even more, bedmakers will be debunked, baseball players will be debased, bulldozer operators will be degraded, organ donors will be delivered, software engineers will be detested, and even musical composers will eventually decompose.
On a more positive note, though, perhaps we can hope politicians will be devoted.
