Tuesday, November 1, 2016 – One Week Away

I hope you and your neighborhood had a safe and candy-filled Halloween. I passed out tequila shots and cigarettes again this year. The children did not seem too happy, but the parents really enjoyed it.

Quote: There is just one cure for logophobia and that is self-scrutiny—to discover whether one’s reaction to a given term when seen in a newspaper or heard from a platform is really justified by the true significance. “Logophobia,” The Nation, August 23, 1919.
