The Null Device

The American Language: Only in America are restrictions on smoking at home considered "ultraliberal"; presumably that's from "liberal" meaning "left-wing", which would make Stalin and Mao liberal extremists. All rather amusing; sort of like the way anti-gentrification protesters in San Francisco were calling the stock-optioned, SUV-driving exponents of dot-com hypercapitalism "dot-communists". (Undoubtedly derived from "communist", meaning "unamerican, having alien values; an evil invader".)
