Shakespearean Imagination!

God save you, neighbours!

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

There’s a lot of scandals and horrific events going on in the world today, and the mainstream media seems to lap it up! Every channel has their own pundits and talking heads lining up to talk about who allegedly did what to whom, why, what it meant, and why they think we should care.

There’s a reason I don’t actually WATCH the news anymore.

In any case, a conversation I had with a friend last night on media bias has inspired today’s word:

accused : ac•cused /əˈkyo͞ozd / (noun) :

-a person or group of people who are charged with or on trial for a crime.

Synonyms defendant – indictee – suspect

Poster’s note: as in, accused; not guilty until proven so.

First seen as a noun in Shakespeare's Richard II (written 1595 - 1596). The full text of the play may be found here.
