Word of the day

Unifuentismo (Colombia): The habit of relying on a single source (specifically, the military and security services) in reporting on conflicts.

Yeah, we have the same concept, and it doesn't really matter if one language makes the concept into one word and another needs three or four, and it's not like the wily Inuit have 118 words for command-post reporting or anything. It's still kind of cool to find out how other people talk about stuff.

Having wonderful time, wish you were here, regular transmissions resume shortly.
