I really like the phrase, "At the end of the day." I never use it, but only because it makes lists like this. To my ear, it carries the connotation that even after a long, hard attempt to wrestle a problem into some other shape, it will remain immovable. I often wish I could use it.

But there's no arguing with such universal disdain.

I'd have to make a claim for the "Oxford Researchers" .... it should have stated as an implemented phrase in need of submission...

"Change"....before its too late-release the oppressed...dignify the churches expression"

My observation....Rahab
