On September 20, I wrote about Sen. Lisa Murkowski's bid to hold onto her seat after she lost the primary to tea party (and Sarah Palin) backed attorney Joe Miller.
I don't know if Murkowski can beat Miller, but I do know that a state which should have been off the boards for the Republicans in 2010 is now in jeopardy because she couldn't take "no" for an answer.
Murkowski mounted a write-in campaign which she won, thus holding onto that seat for the GOP.
I was wrong. Again.
I was reading a review in the Washington Post of the next-to-last Harry Potter movie which opens this afternoon in the U.S.
The writer, Ann Hornaday, used the word, "elegiac:"
With its gray palette and elegiac tone, this penultimate offering is just right for what it is: the beginning of the end."
I didn't recognize elegiac, so I looked it up. Wanna see the definition? This is from the Merriam-Webster Third Unabridged:
Consisting of two dactylic hexameter lines the second of which is often felt to be pentameter and is made up of two hemistichs each containing two dactyls and a long syllable : consisting of two dactylic hexameter lines the second of which has the short elements omitted in the third and sixth feet -- usually used of classical Greek couplets.
What I said …
Have a good weekend.
