"It's Pronounced Throatwarbler Mangrove" Edition
There's a lot going on the world today -- all of it getting tons of attention on the internets. Turd Blossom's been connected to the Valerie Plame leak. Cardinal Schadenfreude (oops, slipped up on that one) is trying to take away our science in favor of his middle eastern tribal mythology. And that Downing Street Memo is still some, how you say, hot shit.
Yet, there is an important and overlooked issue that is not getting its deserved respects: the proper spelling of "evolgen." You see, it's spelled "evolgen," not "Evolgen." And, no, it has nothing to do with e e cummings. It's just the way it is -- look at the top of the page . . . and if you're reading this in a "news reader," click through to my site so I can get an idea of how many readers I have (by the way, this sentence will include all possible forms of punctuation: commas, quotes, parentheses, elipses, semicolons, colons, etc.); I'm nearly complete (am I missing any?), and boy am I elated!
It's spelled "evolgen," but it's pronounced "Throatwarbler Mangrove."
