The Product of Small Minds
You've read that old adage: "Those who can do; those who can't write editorials for the Roanoke Times."
The shoe fits.
Check out today's editorial, "Now deal with rising doublespeak."
In this ditty the editorialists there attack people like me who are convinced that the evidence that humans are causing the planet to warm is unconvincing.
First sentence: "Euphemisms usually fail in politics."
Followed by a whole lot of sentences about a euphemism once termed "global warming" but one that quickly morphed into "climate change" when the globe quit warming but the climate - thank God! - kept changing.
Persons who live by the euphemism die by the euphemism.
