    From Merriam Webster

    The Word of the Day for June 18, 2009 is:

    short shrift \SHORT-SHRIFT\ noun

    1 : barely adequate time for confession before execution
    2a : little or no attention or consideration b : quick work

    Example Sentence:
    Parents are complaining that, due to recent budget cuts, physical education and arts programs have been given short shrift in the local schools.
    Did you know?
    The word "shrift" is an archaic noun referring to the confession or absolution of sins. These days, "shrift" is rarely encountered on its own, but it does keep frequent company with "short" in the phrase "short shrift." The earliest known use of the phrase comes from William Shakespeare's play Richard III, in which Lord Hastings, who has been condemned by King Richard to be beheaded, is told by Sir Richard Ratcliffe to "Make a short shrift" as the king "longs to see your head." Shakespeare uses this phrase quite literally ("keep your confession short"), but since at least the 19th century the phrase has been used figuratively to refer to a small or inadequate amount of time or attention given to something.

    Jeremy spoke in class today, then he bit the recess lady in a very sensitive area, and then he hit me (the little *****.) I think he was just looking for attention but nobody cared.

    That's ok, but I'm ruler of the Universes. I need trustworthy "local" leaders.
