SMART?….I would like to propose an indefinite moratorium on the lazy overuse of the word “smart” to describe a piece of journalism. As in, for example, “Laura Rozen has a smart piece in Mother Jones today about skullduggery in Iraqi Kurdistan.” I’ve gotten pretty tired of it. Anybody with me?
By the way, Laura does have piece in Mother Jones today about skullduggery in Iraqi Kurdistan. Now how can I describe it? She herself calls it “odd, unusual, but kind of revealing,” so how about that? Check it out.
