Ah, but it was not always so. Once upon a time the words were used for
separate purposes, but slipshod writing has blurred the distinctions. So
have many unique words been prostituted by lackluster wordsmiths. My
favorite misused word is enormity, which once meant only horrible, but has,
through ignorance, come to mean large, also. Alas!

Cheers!
Al

Check the dictionary... insure and ensure are synonymous.
