Word of the day: ‘grim’

While reading the news about the protests in Brussels today, one word clearly jumped out: ‘grimmig‘ (or ‘grim‘ in English). Nearly all Flemish articles spoke about a ‘grim athmophere’ (‘grimmige sfeer’) and even international media used the word ‘grim’ often. Don’t you think it is remarkable that all these talented journalists used the exact same expression? Were they reading each others articles? Were all articles based on the same source document (a Belga press release?)? #justasking
