Several things to note here.

a) Any freshman who's managed to stay awake through Survey of Western Philosophy should be able to use the word "ontological" correctly.

b) By my estimation, any journalist who assesses a person's intellect on the basis of her raiment wields professional credibility on a par with Stephen Glass.

c) This is the second story in less than 18 months during which Brooke has repeatedly molested our delicate ears with the word "pussy." Brooke, keep it up and I'm going to have to ask you to marry me just to keep me an honest man.
