Kathy at BermudaOnion's Weblog host this Wednesday meme. It is a place to highlight words you encounter while reading.
I didn't make note of any words I found while reading this week. But my husband and I were watching CBS Sunday Morning as we prepared to meet friends for breakfast. CBS correspondent Mo Rocca was giving a brief overview of his upcoming interview of Jon Stewart. I tried to find a copy of Mo Rocca's comments but was unable to. But he used the word hubris. Something about Jon Stewart's "humor and hubris"
So I looked the word hubris up in the Merriam Webster Dictionary that is on my laptop. Do you think this word describes Jon Stewart?
hu bris noun
: a great or foolish amount of pride or confidence
full definition of HUBRIS
