Quote of the Day
What do you call a co-worker these days? Neither teammate nor confederate will do, and partner is too legalistic. The answer brought from academia to the political world by Henry Kissinger and now bandied in the boardroom is colleague.

There are words bandied about that are being misused - words like 'socialism,' words like 'communism,' words like 'fascism.'
