“It’s no secret that articulate speech — never mind old-fashioned eloquence and reasoned debate — is in increasingly short supply. Insults, complaints and psychobabble fill the airwaves, as television and radio talk shows spread a new gospel of hyperbole and anger. Movies like “Dumb and Dumber” celebrate stupidity and bad taste, even as television shows like “Beavis and Butt-head” vigorously work to raise those qualities to new levels. While politicians specialize in the art of the spin and the sound bite, lawyers and scientists speak in more and more specialized jargon and political correctness czars try to edit what remains of public expression.”
–Michiko Kakutani, reviewing “The Inarticulate Society” in The New York Times, July 14, 1995.
