The New York Post Page Six is hearsay reporting that Vogue editor Anna Wintour has vetoed the use of the word “blog” on Vogue’s web site as “garish-sounding” (here). I happen to agree with her. To “blog” has the onomatopoeic resonance that one is, say, simultaneously losing control of multiple bodily functions.
At last: Anna Wintour and I have something in common! Aside from our abhorrence of direct eye contact for fear someone will detect the squalid vanity of our brutish souls!
