From an entry on the Mexico forum on Dave's ESL Cafe: 'They said that they just felt like another number, a clog in the machine as it were.' That's an English teacher writing there, folks. Would being a clog in the machine be, literally, sabotage? Oh, hell, it's late and I'm half addled. I'll just pass to the next outrage.
From comment on a MarketWatch blog: 'I midas well not even answer them as I know already what their decision will be.' Maybe all that talk of money led to thoughts of a golden touch.
And, finally, the lede of a bit this week by Little Me, Vicad arts reporter:
When doing a review, there are many different ways to approach it. For me, I go the simple route.
How do I feel right after walking out of the theater?
Hope you didn't have any idea that this review was gonna be about anything other than that little old arts reporter [as she actually referred to herself once in print, where the public could read it] treating us to a little old puddle of self-referential drool.
I despair for the republic. All is lost. Chaos has triumphed.
