Word of the Day: Jeremiad

April 30, 2007

According to the OED:

A lamentation; a writing or speech in a strain of grief or distress; a doleful complaint; a complaining tirade; a lugubrious effusion.

I saw this work mentioned in today’s New York Times story about Barack Obama, and had to look it up.

Also of note – this article on the current state of some of the rebuilding projects in Iraq. Sigh…
