The Decider

Why are so many people saying ‘decider’ is not a word? Do they not know their own language and how to use it? The Decider’s arrogance and whininess are immense, but at least he knew how to append -er to a verb, to make a noun meaning ‘one who does’ the action represented by the verb.

Randi Rhodes on journalism standards

I was just listening to an old interview of Randi Rhodes, the Air
America Radio talk program host, and she said there should be
professional standards and boards for journalists. It would be illegal
to misrepresent yourself as a professional news person or news
operation. What makes this interesting is that I already was an
advocate of this, and had no idea Randi Rhodes had the same opinion.
