In an e-mail to me. Are people now deciding that "angst" is just another
word for any random feeling of pissed-off-ness, no longer having any
connection with [existential] _Angst_ at all?

I'd say something, but I learned long ago that people - especially friends
- tins to get upset, when you be correckin' they English.

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.
