We do not write on a regular schedule. Because writing here is simultaneous with managing the site, and other tasks we see ourselves involved, and because each post requires widely differentiated levels of effort, we publish when we have something ready, and not before. If you take an interest in future posts, the best thing is really to subscribe to our word of mouth, the newsletter delivered through FeedBurner, that will hit your mailbox every time a new story is out.

When you write, even when you don’t want to, there is a clear and present possibility of being read. You may stash the words away tucked inside a huge pile of IRS forms, but forget some old box when you move. Or you may have a heart attack, be run down by an off course [...] continue reading
Sometimes regulation forces consumer goods producers to clever gymnastics with labels. Here are some examples that do not seem to derive from loose translation but may prove some absent minded copy writing.
