Now, NOW, George! Those women aren't engineering English language change.
Many people have never heard of NOW, but even more people no longer
understand "man" as having an inclusive meaning. People change language,
over time. You might say that language is quick and powerful, quickly now,
say it! :)

Well, we'd better get back to Greek. At least Koine Greek won't change
meaning over time!
