Coffee with Scott Adams: VP Debate

What does Scott think of the persuasion shown on last night’s debate between VP Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris? Get some coffee, sit down and see.

Word of the Week

Questusation (n.) an accusation wrapped inside a question. A loaded question.

I learned questussation this morning from a man who called into the Dan & Amy radio show. It describes when someone asks you a leading question that actually accuses you.

Examples:

Do you still beat your wife?

Since your plan is such a failure, what do you think was the main reason it was horrible?

Poem of the Week

Autumn Song

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf 
How the heart feels a languid grief 
Laid on it for a covering, 
And how sleep seems a goodly thing 
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf? 

And how the swift beat of the brain 
Falters because it is in vain, 
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf 
Knowest thou not? and how the chief 
Of joys seems—not to suffer pain? 

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf 
How the soul feels like a dried sheaf 
Bound up at length for harvesting, 
And how death seems a comely thing 
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf? 

By Dante Gabriel Rossetti
