Absorbed

By KingBee
Scottish National Portrait Gallery: taken long before anyone had heard of social distancing. I wonder how the people at the Oxford English Dictionary are coping with all these new Covid-related words and phrases - all ones we'd probably rather forget when this is over, I'll wager. But it's important to be on top of your game, politically and linguistically, as anyone who sits glued to the daily BBC Doomwatch special will tell you, so the OED folks had better get on with it. At least they'll get the spelling right; getting to the truth, of course, is another matter.

It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.

It obviously is for some, if the panic buying at supermarkets was anything to go by.....
