New words in Oxford’s tome: muppet, blog, egosurfing, 24/7, bad-hair day, dirty bomb, and, are you ready?…….”bada bing,” the Soprano term. “The Oxford University Press also publishes the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary, which sells for $2,862 and is considered the benchmark for the language.” Does anyone want to donate that to KarenDeCoster.com?

Jacob Sullum compares the real Patriot Act to that which the Justice Department presents on its website. Just damning. Sullum is fantastic on this issue. P.S. — Look for the upcoming book by the heroic Jim Bovard on this topic.
