Words Are For The Birds

The main reason I hate the Supreme Court's overreliance on the use of dictionaries?  Dictionaries aren't meant to be prescriptive, they're meant to be descriptive.   Suppose a contract requires that a party google something as a part of its services to the other party.  Did they mean that the…
