I have been a subscriber to Anu Garg’s A-Word-A-Day for well over a decade. Five times a week, I get an e-mail with the word of the day, its origins, its definitions and an example of useage. In recent years, this e-mail has grown to include a thought for the day.

Here is the one for Sept. 19, 2012:

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

To blame the poor for subsisting on welfare has no justice unless we are also willing to judge every rich member of society by how productive he or she is. Taken individual by individual, it is likely that there’s more idleness and abuse of government favors among the economically privileged than among the ranks of the disadvantaged. – Norman Mailer, author (1923-2007)
