Grammar minute 3

Props to Mike Boone for his "About Last Night" column, and specifically for his use of the proper 'resilience', instead of the cromulent neologism 'resiliency', which is all the rage at HNIC and TSN, and with business consultants, a faux nouveau-speak buzzword that sounds smart, since it has a bunch of syllables and sounds cool, and Aaron Ward uses it, so it must be correct.

I'll bet that within a decade, we'll have talking heads and news anchors start to offer up the word 'resilienciness'.  It's coming.  It's inevitable.
