Subject: offending idioms
Regarding that last posting of mine on "offending idioms" and "African
Americans," the e-mail address was wrong. Obviously, it should be
Colagte:EDU. Also, I apologize to anyone subject to alopecia. Such
persons are clearly "tonsorially challenged"--"hair" is a concrete noun,
and those who have none might find it offensive.
In the event that anyone might be thinking of referring to me as a
"conservative" (approbrious or not according to your inclinations), I am in
fact a card-carrying member of ACLU, an authentic bleeding-heart liberal
who considers laissez-faire market economics a PC word for peonage.
