How to use buck in a sentence?

  1. Karen Bass:

    I’m stunned by the news of Gemmel’s death and the tragic and sad circumstances surrounding it, what I am hearing and reading about [Buck’s] conduct with Gemmel is deeply disturbing. If there are other victims, they should come forward immediately.

  2. Larry Cunningham:

    He should absolutely not stay in office and should step down, the report details a widespread pattern and practice of abuse and discrimination and dysfunction. Because it is widespread and systemic throughout the entire police department, the buck stops at the top — the person in charge — and that's the chief.

  3. Crudup Jr.:

    I'm not here to play the blame game right now. We've been passing this buck around for years. This thing has been decades in the making, even the last two years, we've been dealing with things over and over again, and so I'm just glad right now that the governor has decided to go ahead and step up to the plate and help us out right now.

  4. Nicole Kidman:

    I said, ‘Please, give me the chance. I beg you. Because the writing was so strong. Buck Henry — I mean, come on. Talk about great writing.

  5. Tennis Australia:

    }'A disgrace': See how some Australians are reacting to Djokovic visa row 01:42 However you might feel about the polarizing Djokovic, there's not a scenario where he ever deserved this. It's unlikely the world's No. 1 tennis player would have got on the long commercial flight to Melbourne had he not been given a green light from tournament officials. But somewhere along the way, the information pipeline involving Australian Open officials, the Victorian state government and federal authorities has become a game of broken telephone. Prime Minister Morrison insisted the buck stopped with authorities at the border, not tennis organizers.
