I look forward to the day when the definition includes "recently outlawed political maneuver designed to tilt elections in favor of special interests".

You cannot currently send a star to Stella because you have done so within the last week

Thanks J.L. It would have been handy if the definition appeared immediately after the expression.

That's true Mary. It will be interesting to see what differences, if any, there are between the two dictionaries in the definition when they are released.
