Unexpected name changes

Apparently the Washington Post (both in print and in the online edition) has decided to spontaneously rename Penn&Teller’s Showtime series “Bullshit!” I wonder if they bothered to tell the producers?

I don’t have access here to the Chicago Manual of Style (which I believe the Post purports to follow) so I don’t know what the approved method of redacting an ‘offensive’ word might be (Bull—-? Bull****? Bulls*it?) but I am pretty sure that simply altering it – and leaving accuracy behind – isn’t it.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
