On Ambiguous Facts and Neutral Language

Re: the Wisdom of Fredo

You're quite right, of course, and my apologies for having been loose with my own language.

Which prompted me to think of my previous errors in language. For some time, we've been calling Senator Bob Menendez's Domincan Republic accusers "prostitutes." And that seems unfair, under the circumstances.

Not only does this demean the women, but it also suggests that Bob Menendez met them for purposes of procurement.

This language will not do -- it assumes far too much. Let us retire the word "prostitutes" from this matter and begin calling the women what they are, to wit: "the Victims of Bob Menendez."
