Illness mention 

"Clout" will always sound to me like the name of a 19th century illness that has since been eradicated by like hygiene or nutrition or something

My dearest Winnifred,

It is with regrets that I must write to you to say that three of the little ones have been taken by the Clout. My only consolation is that they are now, after such a painful ordeal, at rest.

Yours pompously,

@bgcarlisle croup is still with us, though with vaccination fatal cases are now rare.

@bgcarlisle Are you saying that's not what it is? ;)
I see no problem in practicing mental hygiene consisting of consistently devaluing anything said about clout.

This, naturally, includes this very toot. ;)
