bad news and good news

factious

The bad news about today’s word is that you will get nowhere by associating it with fact. The good news is that, though unrelated, its meaning is quite similar to fractious, another adjective that differs by a single letter. Factious means “tending to dissent.” If enough folks do this, you end up with factions, which is the closest kin of factious.
