The people who thought Stewart was being too familiar were largely older, or more formal generally, or in the press and found it a breach of etiquette. I am so used to hearing people address each other as dude, I didn't even notice! The first time I was addressed as dude, I was an adult, and this was about fifteen years ago. Since I am female, it hit my ear wrong.

The dark chamber addicted to which the boy collapsed was a basement of the fabulous first-Century Domus Aurea — an elaborate compound built by King Nero after the great animate of 64 AD. That is what it means, right? Absolutely it is a word by furthest possible remove from the realm of propaganda?
