Creds and Cruds for

The term as I've seen it used (and used it) is applied almost unversally to men. And I can't speak for anyone else, but when I call someone a douchebag, I'm not comparing them to a dirty vagina. Also, columnist Dan Savage addressed this in a recent Savage Love podcast. His observation is that the notion of douching as applied to female bits is a holdover from the 70s and 80s, and that most actual douching that occurs these days is anal. This fits the way I use the term a lot better: a total asshole with an undeservedly high opinion of himself.

I give him props for his ethical arguments and for taking seriously the big questions that led to the Existentialist movement. My only qualm is that he too often resorted to the cop-out of "God" as being the answer to those questions. Sartre probably said that better at some point.

As long as it remains superimposed over images of cute animals, I have no problem with it.

Referenced so frequently in response to anything that sounds even remotely like state-sponsored surveillance that it's become beyond trite. Has also become a go-to reference by people who may have read it once (or not at all) to make them seem smart. See also: Kafka-esque, proactive, paradigm, and synergy.

That it's the only piece of classical music many people can name or identify on hearing speaks to its importance. Every great composer had at least a few pieces that were hard as hell to play, but few of those were also as great as Beethoven's 9th.

While I understand and agree with the sentiment, the proposition is a non-starter. Such a ban would be (and has already been ruled) completely unconstitutional.

A non-story. Its only redeeming feature is that it might have shined a light on the insane obsession in this country with "reality" television.

Rededicating "Candle in the Wind" to Princess Diana was kind of ridiculous. Obviously it's his song and he can do what he wants to with it, but wouldn't it have been more meaningful to write a new song for her than to simply repurpose the old one he'd written for Marilyn Monroe?
