When I read the news, I am usually disappointed. Today I’m angry. The feeding frenzy is at its full height since WikiLeaks casually tossed in all those juicy tidbits for the voracious and insatiable piranhas of the tabloid press, just so that we can enjoy sleaze-by-proxy with our morning toast and coffee. Some individuals in far countries may end up dead, in jail and tortured, but by using the Orwellian Newspeak of the last two decades in referring to them as collateral damage, we can sanitize any guilt at the damage done. End of rant.

Words and their etymology are a source of endlessly entertainment. I find that I’m drawn to neophiliac as I do like change, and I wonder if there is a common root to Hippocratic oath and hypocrisy but I’d better not mention this when I’m in for more Botox.

One Response so far.
