    I think you're being more than a little tumid in your exaltation of our corporate press.  The mainstream media is broken, and no longer serves its purpose - if you don't accept that, then you are not really worth conversing with in the long term.  

    I don't have time to take you from point A to point X, I'm afraid.  

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

      Just a puffed-up twerp.

      Free speech? Yeah, I've heard of that. Have you?

        •  Tumid is high praise? (0+ / 0-)

          My response was appropriate on two levels:

          1.  It was, more or less, a plain vernacular translation of tumid
          1.  Somebody who uses gratuitously inserts such a term into the conversation is clearly ripe for puncture.

          Free speech? Yeah, I've heard of that. Have you?
