Language fascinates me, and I’ve read a few books on the history of word and phrase origins. It’s always interesting. “I Love it When You Talk Retro” by Ralph Keyes examined the origins of slang in our culture, both current and past. It was pretty good, mostly interesting. A little too political for my taste in some parts, and he kind of injected his own opinions into the mix by calling “Pulp Fiction” an overrated movie and “The Truman Show” underrated. It didn’t really add to the book; instead I just wondered what the hell? Unless you’re a movie critic (or I ask), I don’t really care about your taste in film.
