Whatever you think about Kim Kardashian (and Kanye West) naming their infant boy Psalm West, something else is truly troubling:
the number of people who do not know how to pronounce Psalm.
You don’t hafta be religious, Christian or some Biblical scholar to know the word psalm.
You just hafta to be SEMI-literate!!
Emphasis for a reason. Not even literate! Merely semi!
Because psalm is a simple word that’s found in BASIC vocabulary.
How fucking STUPID has our American culture become that psalm is, what, now a word of the highest echelon of education?!
Have said it a thousand times and will at least another few thousand before my time’s up:
Thank god we don’t live forever. Would hate to be here when these millennials become leaders / “leaders” and, nightmare of nightmares, reproduce and “raise” their own kids.
Stupid on Steroids.
Or should that read: Pstupid on Psteoroids.
Because, you grand ol’ illiterate nitwits, the “p” is silent in psalm.
Which you would know if you took your brain outta social media (with its literacy-defying ridiculous shorthand) and put into a book … a dictionary … a classroom!
To close on an upbeat note, a random Bible verse off the Internet:
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”
Haha, perfect! I do fear profoundly for humankind for this generation of Illiterates.
As for where I put my trust … in my god, good ol’ Merriam-Webster!
