I am very impressed with the honesty and sense of balanced wisdom you present about language that packs such diverse meaning, depending on the context. I especially appreciate your take on FAKE NEWS, having studied journalism in the early 70s. I also appreciate that you provide authentic instances with each topic. In one word: refreshing. Keep up the good work. Mary Anna Scenga Kruch

It is wonderful how you change up the topics of discussion. I also despise the word "woke" and find it meaningless and absurd. Lately, I have seen it used in a sarcastic manner deriding those who consider themselves "woke." However, the word "synergy" can have a very positive connotation in the right context. You are right that words can be used to deceive and manipulate. Jana Begovic
