Speak, I Say
From Hog On Ice: I Grow Unfair, I Grow Unfair
He's all pouty now because I canned his link and refused to let him speak TRUTH to POWER!
God, how I hate that expression. You can't "speak to power." Power isn't a person. It can't hear. Speaking to power is like speaking to entropy or size or any number of nouns that represent abstract concepts which have no consciousness and no location.
He didn't actually say "speak truth to power." I'm just drifting here.
Some people speak truth to power. I speak flatulence to width. I speak menopause to arbitrage. Top that, pretentious pinheads who screw up the English language.
(What the web needs now is a "speak this to that" generator ;-)
