WOTW: Sophistry

Sophistry:  noun, the use of fallacious arguments, especially with the intention of deceiving

Found in The Broken Teaglass by Emily Arsenault:
"What kind of fucked-up priorities do people have that you'd tell a little old man just trying to honor his dead wife that he can't put what he wants on her tombstone?  Over some little bit of sophistry, no less?"
