Visigoths in the dust
"Poláček published A Journalist's Dictionary, a collection of hundreds of vapid expressions favored by contemporary journalists."And I felt a surge of kinship with Poláček when I read that
"(O)n the pretense that the Visigoths had been maligned in history as a barbarous and destructive people, he founded a tongue-in-cheek school journal called the Visigoth Review, in which he championed the Visigoth cause."I have never founded a tongue-in-cheek school journal, but I did put up a blog post two years ago called "Visigoths: Breaking the Silence." I may lack a spiritual brother, but a satirical novelist with Visigothic tendencies who hates clichés sounds like a good candidate for the job.
