Real Language Scores A Victory

http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/06/21/britain.jargonbusters.ap/index.html

The Local Government Association in England has sent out a decree banning the use of modern business-jargon in British local government activities. Synergy, empowerment, coterminosity -- all of these and more are verba non grata.

Lector Language Person is thrilled, I say ye, thrilled!

Is the South Loop okay, and do you like Thai food?

There's this Thai place on Harrison and Wabash, called Thai Spoon, which is near the Center for Black Music Research, where I have worked on and off. Thai Spoon is kind of a college-student dive, but it's got pretty decent Thai and Japanese food for a moderately-priced place.

That sounds good. Would you be able to make it a little early, say 11:30? I've got a meeting to go to at 2:00 now.

Yeah, I can make 11:30, especially if I take the el. The Taste has the Drive all clogged up, so the #6 bus takes forever and a day.

We'll have to be careful not to mention to Dot and Bodkin that we're having lunch at such an uncivilised hour :-)
