    Very interesting! I was referred to your site when I looked up the word “sicked” today as I was pretty sure it was spelled “sicced” but I guess not. It was in a newspaper article today (7/12/12), which said the Anaheim policed sicked their dogs on a crowd of women and children — and it looked odd to me.

Luckily, that was not the case, and no, I was not actually bitten at all.
