the President.

I decided to abstain from the President's message this evening. I'm tired of the same old thing - even when its new words for the same old thing. Figure I can get the highlights and subtleties tomorrow morning.

And where on earth did we get "subtle" from? What happened to the "b"?

Not sure where the "b" went, but...

ORIGIN Middle English (also in the sense [not easily understood] ): from Old French 'sotil,' from Latin subtilis ‘fine, delicate.’ .
