The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with the meaning of words.
* * * * *
odi·ous adj. \ˈō-dē-əs\ : causing strong dislike; arousing or causing repugnance.
in·fa·mous adj. \ˈin-fə-məs\ : well known for being bad or evil.
frighten verb \ˈfrī-tən\ : to cause (someone) to become afraid.
frightened • fright·en·ing
I can understand how someone might have a strong dislike for a person who set a time bomb in the parking lot of a high school football game. Someone who was convicted of a series of high-profile bombings might be considered to have become infamous. And being frightened of such a person is a perfectly reasonable reaction.
So Thursday could be a very big day. The Gentle Reader should stock up on popcorn, Jujubes, Raisinets, Junior Mints, or Milk Duds. And if none of those work for you, we also have Red Twizzlers available via Amazon.
Stock up. Stay Tuned.

The possible big day on Thursday mentioned in the post referred to the final pretrial hearing in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit scheduled for the day after the post. The results of the hearing were mixed, but generally in the defendants favor. While we wound up having to go to trial, the court denied The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for a preliminary injunction that would have shutdown our blogging about him.
Of course, by going to trial and losing, TDPK created the opportunity for even greater pointage, laughery, and mockification. Nothing proceeded as he had imagined.
