In today's Power Line, The Big Trunk refers to "media bigfeet". Is that correct? Or should they be 'bigfoots'? After all, the plural of 'still life' is 'still lifes', not 'still lives'. I have to admit that neither 'bigfeet' nor 'bigfoots' looks right to me. I would avoid using the word in the plural, except for comic effect.
At the end of the same entry, Hindrocket refers to the "feckless Clinton years". I suppose Clinton admirers could retort that if he was feckless, now we're really fecked.
I like to think of this entry and the two preceding as 'Pedantic Feetnotes'.Posted by Dr. Weevil at December 13, 2003 09:51 PM
