Via my pal Ashley, an MSNBC article
's updated Collegiate Dictionary. And via my lj pal humanx
, a NY Observer article
about the word 'dude.' And via Metafilter, a page
about an MIT student's attempt to go from Florida to Cuba via outrigger canoe. And Bush's inciteful language
. What a prick. (Here's the mefi discussion
, and a few relevant articles folks cited--Shrub and emotional language
, Shrub and cowboy language
, Shrub getting a break on 'exaggerations
.'.) Ooh, and, hyped by the Cuba guy, 'Addicted to War: Why the U.S. Can't Give Up Militarism
.' I want a copy.
Incidentally, the version of 'The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll' on 'Bootleg Series Vol. 5' is really freaking good.
