Date: Wed, 2 Nov 1994 09:45:15 -0400 From: Bob Lancaster 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.
