THE RETURN OF THE PRO

A DIFFERENT ONE

What is the error in the entry below?

"Those shocking details are among the mountains of evidence U.S. prosecutors have made public after Veillette hung himself in an Ohio jail."
Trevor Wilhelm, "Affair led to killings", The Windsor Star, Thursday, April 24, 2008.


A GOOD PHILOSOPHY

Identify the author of the following:

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”

TODAY'S WORD

The word for today is "extrapolate".
Define "extrapolate" and use it in a sentence.

Seems like "among" is the wrong word to use. I would say "included in".

The quote is either Lincoln or James T. Kirk. I'll say Kirk.

To extrapolate is to extend known data beyond its bounds into the unknown (and hope for the best).
