      I sent it to my son who is in college in a nearby suburb. Barone’s knowledge is fantastic.

      Wow that article is outstanding. Thanks for sharing it.

      By his count, George Carlin’s seven words you can’t say on television are used 18 times more often in the most popular left blogs than in the more popular right blogs. Holy–er, yikes! DailyKos has 146,000 pages on which the words appear and Huffington Post has 109,000 (although Arianna herself, at least in my hearing, uses such words very sparingly if at all). The biggest count on the right blogs: 9,730 on Ace of Spades (a blog I can’t recall reading, though I may have encountered it through a link).
