The Joys of a Limited Vocabulary

It's convenient that everybody in the news lately can be described with a single, all-purpose word. Scum.

Right-wingers badmouthing Jill Carroll? Scum.

Tribune Company naming the (formerly) cheap seats at Wrigley Field "The Bud Light Bleachers" for an undisclosed chunk of cash not being spent on shoring up the injury-plagued pitching staff? Scum.

Nino Scalia doing or saying anything at all? Scum, scum, scum.

It's irritating as hell, but at least it's convenient.

UPDATE: People who stand on the sidewalk outside my apartment on the first nice day of the year and scream at each other? You guessed it. Scum.
