flavored with age

Language corner

So, I'm reading this book called The Martyrs of Columbine: Faith and the Politics of Tragedy, which is very interesting. But that's not important right now. What's important is that the killers, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, are continually referred to as "gunmen".

But, alas, they were not. Dark mirror images of the girl who'll be a woman soon, they were boys who would never grow up to be men.

I therefore suggest the use of the word "gunteen" to describe them, and others like them, in the future.

Thank you.

Icons are GO!!!

Tomorrow is a new month, and that means it's time for you, the crazed-with-sexual-desire Leonard Pierce fan, to vote on my next Ikon-Zet. Pick one:

1. Pictures of me, culled and altered from my years-long "Self-Portraits in Bathroom Mirrors" series

2. Mug shots of country music stars of the '40s, '50s and '60s

3. Out-of-context shots of male porn actors

4. Yet more from my seemingly endless collection of obscure breakfast cereal mascots

5. Guns I would like to own someday

Take your passion! Make it happen!
