Linguist, lexicographer, radio host, public speaker

Maybe some day I will be his boss. That’s the American dream

“The lens of public attention attracts a certain brand of person; and in America, at least, those people seem unusually good at finding their own lunch. Sometimes a subject will distort his story; sometimes the media does it for him. Often it’s a collaboration. We had a photographer who carried a woman’s high-heeled shoe in the trunk of his car. Fortunate enough to chance upon a ghastly auto crash, he’d put that shoe in the foreground before he took the picture.”
