Politics and the English Language

Its election season, and attack ads are upon us. Attacks based on emotion come as nothing new to cyclists, though. Nice piece at Slate about this:

Why You Hate Cyclists: Partly because of jerks like me. But it’s mostly your own illogical mind.   By Jim Saksa.

I've written my own $0.02 regarding the attack ads I've been getting in regards to the New Mexico House District 43 race. Carol Clark is posting it on the Daily Post. I will link to it when it appears. Here it is.

The title of this post, of course, refers to the excellent essay written by Eric Blair, aka George Orwell, in 1946.
