American language - "to opine"

I said that the Americanism "to opine" seems to have disappeared. Mike Sullivan opines: " I see that you don't watch Bill O'Reiley on Fox News. He closes his show nightly soliciting for comments by saying "Should you wish to opine....". He is a Harvard man along and was a professor. You should view this nightly news program at least once as I'm sure it will get your dander up!" RH: Sorry, I can't find my dander, so I must have lost it. WAISers, do you opine?
