Chemical Plants, Still Unprotected (NYT)

``outrage'' actually comes from French ``outre,'' beyond what is proper

it's made into a noun with the suffix -age

then English sees the -rage and thinks : what is beyond what is proper deserves rage - the word itself says so!

this is so useful that it was reimported into French, where the NYT got it, for its use in moral posturing.

It is outrageous that something as important as chemical plant security is being decided in a Congressional back-room deal.
