Personal Pronouns Aren't Just for English Class
Thursday, 22 September 22 at 8:04 PM
Is failure to use someone's preferred pronouns defamatory, or a micro-aggression? What if someone (or some company) demands that I use certain pronouns against my will? Is that a micro-aggression against me? This issue cuts both ways, and can be expensive, as an Ohio university just found. Pricey Education
And then There Was One ...

Brian Stelter has been fired at CNN, so now Howard Kurtz of Fox News has the only regularly scheduled media analysis show on television. Kurtz handled his rival's departure with class; Stelter didn't. And now Greg Gutfeld is sad.

It really isn't fair to pick on sportswriters' misuse of the King's English, but it's so easy, like throwing an M-80 into a barrel of fish. What has become of the honorable profession of copyediting? Couple Examples'

Screwed-up headlines are fun to catch, not so much fun if you're the one who wrote them. Assets. Hand jobs. Disks. Red tape. Go ahead, submit your favorites. Dead Heads
Your Vote Counts ... Or Does It?
Monday, 20 August 2018 at 5:40 PM
Every election, we're admonished to be sure to vote, because an election can hinge on a single vote. We guess that's true, but more often, it isn't. And it certainly isn't as much fun as finding out how many dead people are voting.
President Trump and the Independent (?) Media
Thursday, 16 August 2018 at 10:50 PM
Yesterday, more than 300 newspapers coordinated articles criticizing President Trump ... just after he'd accused them of coordinating articles criticizing President Trump.
Clearly, their perceived self-importance overwhelms any possibility of a sense of humor. Media Omphaloskepsis
Your Vote Matters ... Even When it Doesn't
Sunday, 06 November 2016 at 10:56 AM
Many television and radio "talking heads" have proudly announced that they aren't going to vote in Tuesday's election, because they're disdainful of the Presidential choices.
Don't be taken in by this arrogant approach; there are many other important races -- Senators and Representatives and many local elected positions -- and lots and lots of state and local issues, too. Votes Matter
It's Election Time: We're Doomed
Saturday, 05 November 2016 at 07:55 PM
Some folks believe we're doomed, no matter what the results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections. Others find the whole thing highly entertaining, if a bit disgusting. Liberal fanboys say, "Oh, wrong computer equipment. No harm, no foul." But if you understand anything about classified information, and the enormity of the foreign powers' successful hacking regimes, the significance of many thousands of intercepted emails is clear. And frightening.

For All those Marketers Who Don't Bother to Read Our Web Site
Wednesday, 31 August 2016 at 07:00 PM
We've been found!
And for all those suppliers who have been trying to sell us search services or site optimization or marketing consulting, that's a bad thing. As it is for those who want to sell us promotional products or sales tools (or, certainly, those folks who believe our personalities need a makeover!). Because we're in the midst of a major site overhaul, and certainly don't want to promote the current version of CornerBarPR.com® until more of our improvements are in place.
We've posted this notice before, but it appears that suppliers and marketers don't bother to read our site before blindly sending us promos, ... so we'll give them another chance. Lousy Timing
