That's a very good and concise presentation in Jim Webber's 
article.   Since he credits Mark Baker, I assume he had some 
incisive input on the matter.

I'd give a lot to know Russert's opinion, but like a very 
large section of the population, I've pretty much decided 
how I will vote and my blog makes that clear.  I'm not a 
happy camper about the use of the Mean Machines on either side.

The tools we use tend to become habits and we fight for 
our habits often without realizing that they are only that. 
Semiotics teaches much about the power of habit formation.

impressions of the candidates!).
