That was a whole lot of Safire, that's for sure. It was good, but the heft of it all gets to you somewhere in the middle and you realize why people would read this day by day in the paper or week by week - it's not really clear, since it was published at a time when everyone just knew it, very unhelpful for posterity and not all in one lump sum. His cleverness and facility with language are enjoyable, certainly, which is likely why he had the various positions in society he held for so long. S That was a whole lot of Safire, that's for sure. Sadly, much of it is rather dated, especially the political entries, which may be a significant drawback, especially to people younger than me which accounts for most of the world's population, apparently.

Many of the entries deal with people whose time on the world stage ended almost 25 years ago I was about to type "15," but, yeah, well How many Secretaries of State from the s can you name? Many names rang the tocsins of long-distant memories, but that's about it not to be confused with "toxins". Some may enjoy this for the response letters included, hearing from such used-to-be-famous people such as Jacques Barzun, George Carlin, Colin Powell, Mrs.
John Steinbeck, and others you may or may not recognize.

I enjoyed many of the linguistically-driven entries, of course, being me, and I'm glad I read it, but it's a total package that today may be slightly less than the sum of its parts, no disrespect intended to Mr. Norma is a more fun way of looking at descriptive grammar , the opposite of prescriptive grammar.
Let me repeat here: whose grammar Norma Loquendi describes depends on who is describing her. Norma likes you.

I like Norma I'm a pedant , but I like descriptive grammar. Not everyone likes Norma. Chris Trejbal , columnist for the Minnesota Daily Online , once wrote the following of descriptive grammarians: "These are the same wishy-washy types that turn out to be cultural relativist s, physical anti-realist s and Neo- Postmodern - Deconstructive - Gender-Studies major s, incapable of taking a firm stand on any issue. My firm stand is that over time, Norma knows what she's doing, though it takes a few years to confirm that a new language custom is not just a whim. Also, some of her habits defy logic or lead towards ambiguity -- in these cases it's necessary to disagree with her.
