This is not dance-related, but I couldn't resist. The Arizona Republic recently underwent a redesign, which received satirical treatment from the Phoenix New Times (link below -- you need Acrobat to download). Sample quote from the parody: "Dismissing language altogether, metro editor Paul Maryniak today banned the use of words in the Arizona Republic. 'Words waste people's time….We have to get reporters away from the mistaken notion that we are writers first and reporters second.':

It just seems emblematic of a trend toward dumbing down newspapers. Alas.

Thanks for that -- I agree, it's very relevant. It is becoming the New Dark Ages, isn't it?
