Uh oh… the Harbinger of Doom stalks President Obama
And by the way: I was never sure, until I was writing that headline, whether the word was “harbinger” or “harbringer.” But there doesn’t seem to be any such word as “harbringer,” except as a common misspelling of “harbinger.”
Also by the way, I tend to think of “harbinger” as a bad, daunting sort of thing, but it really isn’t:
late 15c., herbengar “one sent ahead to arrange lodgings” (for a monarch, an army, etc.), alteration of M.E. herberger “provider of shelter, innkeeper” (late 12c.)
See? Harbingers are nice.
