Today it is not the classroom nor the classics which are the repositories of models of eloquence, but the ad agencies.
I’ve never been in a ‘Twitter fight,’ though I’ve witnessed my fair share. I do enjoy vigorous and informed debate, but the benefit is lost when the exchange becomes a series of petty ad hominem attacks. I don’t see much value in it.
Every night I watch the nightly news. It’s funded by the pharmaceutical companies. Virtually every ad is a drug ad. They get their say every night on the nightly news through advertising.
