If you’re up to here with fracking, read on

I was puzzled, amidst all the craziness about ex-congressman (Oh, I hope it’s ex) Eric Massa (D-NY), by his early suggestion that he was being forced out of his seat for saying “I should be fracking you” to an aide. I wasn’t certain what fracking meant until I read Jack Marshall’s wise blog on “Fracking Ethics.”

I recommend this provocative analysis of obscenity, euphemism, and straight talk. Don’t miss the string of comments.
