Is it dead?! I was describing to my wife a man who had a "shaven" head
and she corrected the adjective to "shaved," automatically! WTF?! Has
"shaven" gone the way of "proven"?!

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
