Is it just me or is the media abusing the term "historic" these days? From the historic election of a blackberry-toting president to his historic inauguration ceremony to the issuing of a historic commemorative coin. You'd think they could share the wealth and find other suitable words to describe current events. Words like memorable, noteworthy, unique, unusual, innovative, once-in-a-lifetime, rare, newsworthy... spongeworthy! All presidential inaugurations are historic. And one might argue things can be historic for good or bad reasons. All I'm saying is they should ease off the term a bit. After all, historic is something that history will recall and, since history is a compilation of things that have happened in the past, that's not a very high threshold. I think Fezzik, the giant in Princess Bride said it best when he called Vizzini out on his over-use of the word inconceivable: "you keep using that word. I don't think it means what it think it means..."
If you're reading this note, you know exactly what it means. It means that despite the historic donut Tuesday (where donuts were coincidentally brought-in on Chinese new year's day), donut Friday is here yet again. So come on down and grab a delicious Krispy Kreme. There are four dozen glazed (and a dozen assorted "non-glazed") donuts waiting for you courtesy of Jeff King.
