Spent the second half of the year watching a fair number of westerns, and caught up with RIO BRAVO for the first time. It’s fantastic even if you don’t love the genre.

Maybe it’s people who stole uniforms and are doing a heist!

Dog pics are not my thing in general but I’m disappointed to hear that people want to police how you share your joy.

Given this dialogue I'm a little afraid of what survey lies in wait for Strawberry tonight.

Last night, between watching "Janet(s)" (fantastic) and "House Arrest" (finally watching THE SOPRANOS!) I put on my Elf on a Shelf hat and answered a survey my son had left for our Elf, Strawberry. His questions, my answers follow. My stuff is in brackets.

The "dumbing-down" remark: English speakers have always had difficulty with "who/whom" and "lie/lay." A minority learns the distinctions. People learn what is important to them. Many have evidently decided that the esteem of sticklers is not a sufficient reward for the effort.

I suspect frequent stormings-off after ill-advised jokes or rants.

Almost all of us vastly overrate other people’s ability to read between the lines.

Stop Making Sense. There are Demme movies I love more, but there's a reason this has decades-long reputation as the greatest concert movie ever made.

A lot of anger about "political correctness" is just people being furious about the expectation that they be respectful to someone different from them.

While it is not the main point of the article at all, anyone interested in human-to-human communication should read it. Part of it is about the power of words, spoken humbly and honestly and without expectations.
