chic, chicer, chicest
I am finally chic. Of course the problem with this kind is that nobody knows it.
‘The chicest thing,” said fashion designer Phoebe Philo recently, “is when you don’t exist on Google.
No, Phoebe, actually the chicest thing is when you don’t REQUIRE Internet anonymity.
It’s called democracy, and clearly the American people have forgotten what it is.
There’s another kind of internet anonymity.
It occurs when your handle is SO COMMON that it’s nearly impossible to pick “you” out of the clutter.
I have that one. :-)
Our local Gannett newsrag now requires using Facebook to post comments on its online forums, in the interest of “keeping discussions civil”.
The result is that topics which used to have a hundred or more comments now get 5-6 or a dozen, and those which used to get a dozen or so get 1-2 or none.
Nice going, Gannett!
We could all be more like Tom Cruise’s character Jack Reacher. The guy was invisible...
