Language Matters

Battles over what is a semantics problem, and what is a real language problem, rattle about the blogosphere all the time. What is a meltdown? Autistic or person with autism? What do our words really say?

One thing I am telling Joey a lot is "words have meaning." It is important to use words carefully, and think before you speak. Words have meaning. Why is that so hard to remember?

Possibly because we live in a largedly self-centered and entitled world. Some people don't think they have to remember.
