    We are in almost 100% agreement about the great value of Lakoff's work.  I didn't mean to only focus on the one point of criticism that I have.

    In fact, I just got my copy back yesterday from one of my students, who read it from cover to cover, along with my copies of Zinn's "People's History of the US", Frank Rich's "Greatest Story Ever Sold" and Dean Baker's "The Conservative Nanny State."

    Bottom line:  I'm a huge Lakoff fan, despite some differences about tactics.  We need more pulic intellectuals with his kind of commitment, values, and communication skills.
