Comment 16 by Marcus Small -

I suppose for some, it would be nice to live in world where words mean what the dictionary says they mean. I rather fear, no, hope, that words are not like that.

Actually, words are like that, otherwise they are meaningless noises.

Of course tidy minded, black and white, 'either or types' find that infuriating and even inconvenient.

Those of us who prefer facts to flummery, elucidation to equivocation, sophistication to sophistry?

The sort of people who point out that the Emperor has no clothes?

And are damn proud to do so, on all counts.
