LA WILDFIRE PROMPTS TANGIBLE CONVERSATIONS

News affiliates around the world will need to learn of the word’s new positive definition before inadvertently describing living conditions in third world countries as “not convenient especially in giving trouble or annoyance.” [click here for silver lining: “Gmail Users Suffer Through Outage”]
