Saw this the other day, Douglas. There seems to be two opposing camps around this. One lot sees Henderson as a stalwart defender against the barbarian hordes who want to destroy the English language, while the other lot (myself included) believe the man could be doing something a damn sight more useful - like getting out occasionally. 

One of the most entertaining critiques of this sad obsession comes from one of your compatriots - the magnificent John McIntyre of the Baltimore Sun: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/language-blog/bal-a-senseless-waste-of-human-life-20150204-story.html

After a moment of confusion, and a quick dictionary check to see if I was using the word properly... I am with the hordes thinking the guy needs to get out more often. Languages change and evolve, sometimes for good and sometimes for not-so-good... by the way, since when has "sick" meant "great, good, awesome"??
