The other day, I finally read another article about Supreme Court nominee John Roberts. (I'd stopped reading anything about him a couple days after he was nominated.) What drew me to the subject? It was Roberts' propensity for proper grammar and usage. (He uses awesome words like slumgullion!) I haven't been closely following the reports of his political and legal opinions, but this? It's almost enough to give me a crush on him. The Language Log people, of course, picked up on the story in this post.
P.S. Slumgullion means "a watery meat stew." It also sounds very Tolkien, doesn't it? The Slumgullion Silmarillion?
