Object Lessons: Rantings of a Lone Pamphleteer
With apologies to the men, a clarificationMy cousin, CSM Eddie, wrote me a funny note from the Green Zone, saying he was going to "figure out what puerile means." Which started me thinking.
In my original letter to USA Today, I did not intend to call all men puerile. They edited out half the letter, for space reasons they said. The final paragraph originally read:
"Ridiculously puerile" specifically meant the attitude that society has to treat innocuous words as if they were vulgar. Not that men's attitudes in general are puerile. I know many fine men, and I like you all.
But seriously, can we get a pay raise over here?
