Presumed Awesome #doodle


2011-11-02  #1202

Presumed is one of those words that gets stuck in negative situations
and courtroom connotations… ‘presumed missing’, ‘presumed (gulp)
dead’, ‘presumed innocent (until we come up with a better plot
point)’, etc. But there is nothing in the dictionary definition to
hint at this negative baggage that presumed gets stuck carrying:

presumed – past participle, past tense of pre·sume (Verb)
Verb: 1) Suppose that something is the case on the basis of
probability. 2) Take for granted that something exists or is the case.

I’d like to reclaim presumed and take the stance, and ask your
agreement, that you and I shall take it for granted that you’re

’cause you are.
