Fired for Wording!

Sure, Microsoft Word is fine for kids who want to write papers for school, but serious professionals should be very worried about using this dangerous tool! Just a few weeks ago, I found out about this poor Des Moines woman fired for Wording at work!

Three hundred single-spaced pages of irresponsibility. Her name is Emmalee Bauer, so perhaps we should give her a verb -- be careful with your word processor, or you could get Emmaleed™.

In completely, totally unrelated news, there was a nice story about Vox in the New York Times.
