I complained last month that "pragmatic," the word Merriam-Webster said was the most frequently searched on its website in 2011, was impossibly boring. So utilitarian! And so unrepresentative of a year in which pragmatism wasn't the rule. (See the Republican primary, for instance. Come to think of it, "pragmatism" continues not to be much of a Republican ideal—New York magazine notes that just last night, the candidates spent seven and a half minutes debating the possibility of a lunar colony.) Anyway, Merriam reports today that right now "egregious" is the word that you, the people, are wondering about. Why? Paula Deen, of course! She's been up to some egregious business lately.
