*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

"Next" means "Next"?
Our local ABC station has started an advertising campaign that says “Next means next,” which is to say that when they tell you that a certain news story is coming up “next,” (in a teaser) you won’t have to wait through interminable stories to actually hear the story they’re teasing.
Well, tonight at the end of the 20/20 show, Channel 2 came on with their teaser for the 11:00 news. “Next…” they said, and they talked about a landslide nearby that was threatening a house. And yet, the lead story was about a boy who was involved in a sex scandal.
I’m waiting for them to reply to the e-mail I sent them.
