The other day a Fox News anchor reported on the political crisises facing the world.
Crisises? From a national anchorman?
Reminds me of the time a middle school vice-principal asked an auditorium full of students to hold their applauses until the end of the presentation.
Finally, an answer to the age-old question: What is the sound of one hand clapping?
One applause vs. two applauses.
A very unique answer, don’t you think? Extremely unique. Singularly unique. (Then again, how one of a kind can something be?)
Or maybe, to borrow from George W. Bush, I’m just misunderestimating.
This isn’t quibbling or gotcha. If we can’t speak properly, we can’t think properly. If we want to make the world a better place, we have to be able to communicate so that others can understand us. And we have to be able to understand ourselves.
The Language of Confusion — 60 years later, George Orwell’s dystopian vision is more relevant than ever.
