Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Culture, Humor, Sports
Workplace Distraction

Christopher Hitchens has what's becoming a very much talked about hit piece on Michael Moore and "Fahrenheit 9/11" at Slate.

He's gone over the edge. How long is this article? Like fucking 10,000 words? Here's the thing. He engages in distortion while accusing Moore of distortion. Don't get me wrong. Moore has his faults. But Hitchens is way overboard. Our preeminent 9/11 conservative has lost it.

I'm going to rebut the article here on Wednesday, point-by-point if I can find the time.
