Today's news is chalk full of words that need to be defined again for people. First we have this story on the front page of the Journal with the headline of "Human smuggling reveals border flaws":
Let's look up the word "reveal" shall we?
Anyone who thought that the borders were secure until they read that article... please email me... I have a bridge to sell you. I'm always amazed at how people seem to think that border security is racist, or just plain wrong, when it's "only" the poor Mexicans who come across, but that we need to put up a wall when we find a couple terrorists. You can't have it both ways folks.
In other news... it's a sad day for my Kansas City Chiefs. Hall of Fame coach Hank Stram died at age 82. Anyone who has enjoyed NFL Films will surely remember this quote from Stram during Super Bowl IV against the Vikings:
Of course... matriculate really means:
Rest in peace old friend... you did good... even if your grasp of English was sometimes off. I'm going to have to keep an eye on ESPN Classics tonight, I'm sure they'll replay that classic game soon. It was actually the first time a head coach was wired with a microphone during the game, and he really played it up.
