The Wine & Cheese Miracles … an Atlas Tweeted caps what’s been a Blitzkrieg of English
upon a globe’s nonfictional dialog … nightmarish!
After Greek, English is only the world’s 2nd lingua franca. A rich vocabulary and easy
rhymes are at home in song, psalm, prose … or poetry.
The richest tongue (by word count) owes its extreme wealth to heavy
borrowing from other tongues and the quirks of His timing … uncanny.
To wit: There are more English-speaking Chinese than Americans; perhaps more Chinese wits
than Americans know a twit from a tweet. Tweet it!
Tweet is commonly understood, but twit? Twits are taunts. To twit is to titter
or taunt. Hmm. Curiously, our host is Twitter … not Tweeter.
Why Twitter and not Tweeter albeit an intriguing riddle isn’t the point. It’s that Nelson’s legacy
calls for reconciliation … immediately.
