Tom Maguire is a joy to read, not just for his insight, but for his language as well. When I came across another instant classic of his I just had to check, and sure enough, he's the only one who shows up for the quip "Is that much straw a fire hazard?" - at least until this post does. And yes, the whole post is as good as the quip.
I think I'll start pushing the Liberal:Conservative as Woman:Man analogy after Tom documented how a liberal woman reading a conservative man's writing simply didn't understand him. At all. And neither Tom or I had any trouble understanding him.
