Mind you, once the majority is overwhelming, it rules. So we have "impact" as a transitive verb describing non-physical phenomena (which makes me cringe); and the words "stadia" "curricula" etc are consigned to the dustbin (and I won't miss them).
There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey. --John Ruskin
