Seeking Liberty

Liberty is the Fruit from Which All Progress Grows

Health Care is Two Words

Just a short note on a pet-peeve of mine:

The term is not “healthcare.”  Healthcare is not a word.  The proper term is “health care.”  Two words, not one.

Yes, the English language is full of redundancy, allowing us to understand colloquial mistakes such as this, and I am by no means a grammarian.  It doesn’t mean we should just abandon the proper terminology.

Carry on.
