The NYT was late this morning ... just arrived, in fact. I like the OpEd page on Fridays, because Paul Krugman's a good read. When he does economic stuff, it's like what linguists need in terms of public voices in prominent media outlets: a top academic who can speak to a broad public effectively.
But today's column is called "Colorless Green Ideas", leading me to wonder if he'd taken up our battle. Alas, it's a column about environmental policy (= green ideas) and how important nitty gritty but not-very-sexy (= colorless) policy decisions are.
There's a whole cult around the phrase colorless green ideas. (Unlike the editors at BBC News, you, gentle reader, can use google, and other search engines too probably, so can easily track down zillions of them.) But I don't ever recall seeing it played with quite this way.
