In the news

The Associated Press had an article about Lewis, a cat that has been terrorizing its neighbors.

Here is some of the text:

The neighbors said Lewis' long claws, along with catlike stealth, have allowed the cat to attack at least a half dozen people and ambush the Avon lady as she was getting out of her car.

Catlike? It's not catlike . . . it's a cat. Does no one use the word 'feline' any more?

At the local Rite Aid, I picked up a bottle of shampoo and then realised I had to pay for it. So I went to the feeline.

hahahahaha. I am finding that way too funny - I must still be drunk from last night!

It's laziness, pure and simple, akin to people insisting on using the word "woman" as an adjective (as in "She was the first woman astronaunt.") when we already have a perfectly good adjective in the word "female."
