I came across this headline: "Oklahoma Stops Botched Execution. Inmate Dies Anyway." (link)
I was truly disturbed by the use of "anyway". To me, it implies a nonchalant attitude about something that is highly sensitive and controversial. Am I wrong? Is the use of "anyway" acceptable?
What made me post this question is the use of "anyway" in casual speech. For example, after a pause, one side says "Anyway, should we go to lunch?" So, I have this feeling about "anyway" being a less-than-worthy word that one would not use in formal settings. Am I still wrong?
