And its effects on language, health, politics, and the environment

Nearly 24 years later, Chernobyl is still a dirty place, a dirty word.

What They Say- What They Mean: Health Care Reform

Oh yeah. Its finished. Done with. Caput. Defunct. Deceased. Extinct. Artifacto. Fuggedaboutit. Game over, man. Part of the vast past tense. Washed up. Down the drain. Sleeping with the fishies.
