Monday Reindeer Game

It's the AF&O Reindeer Game, and everybody is welcome to play! Time for today’s round of the game. Check out the Dictionary.com Word of the Day at right and share your own sentence using the word. It’s educational and it’s fun, so play along with us. And feel free to comment on other sentences.

OK, today’s word:

abrogate

As usual, I’ll go first:

If the Federal Marriage Amendment wins ratification, it will not abrogate legal inequality in the US — equality for all under law does not exist. However, it will abrogate the remaining vestiges of decency and justice.

Go ahead, make my day.

    De jure segregation was abrogated during the 1960s, but in reality, de facto segregation exists to this day. All one has to do is look at the schools of affluence and the schools in the barrios/ghettos of America, to see the truth of this.
