That article claims from one single use of the word 1895 that it has been used since then. It simply isn't so. There are so many other explanations for that word appearing in print, the most obvious...

The context is everything. It isn't just not equivalent, it's simply misleading (wrong) to call those "whiteface". (Just like it would be wrong to call every white person dressing as a person of...

It does look pretty good but I'm afraid before I see it I'd want to go back and see everything the two made, every radio show and every movie. Unfortunately, it is very hard to see a radio show.

That's not helpful to someone who doesn't watch tennis.



The answer is, without a doubt, (and McEnnroe himself has said several times) no. Not by a long shot.

Another thing it completely misrepresents in a way that I think reflects badly is the idea that Osaka was unhappy with Williams or what was going on. In fact, she has said in interviews, she turned...

I don't think it's blonde but it certainly doesn't look (and she doesn't look) anything like that cartoon. Huh? What culture do you think she's from anyway??

I see. I missed the rather important 'track-only' part. (That's about all I know about sports cars: 'I read somewhere that...')

It's sometimes called cubist which is truly puzzling because it only takes a few of the rather superficial aspects of cubism, if that. I guess a little thing that annoys me is that 'cubist' lost all...

If pilot rhymes with towelette, its like those wild horses out on those overgrown sandbars they call owlands - I mean islands. You'll survive. Your sandbar might not though so, seek higher ground.
