Hmm, I wonder if he ever even thinks that "academic language" is probably what has kept the trouble going all these years? Just from where I'm sitting, I can see it tearing apart the country again. It's so deep in acadamia that us common folk can't understand it. There's where the trouble lies. We really are told to "pass it so we can read it to see what's in it". Sounds like there's a real communication problem and it's not with you George. Boyd and those elite's (hate to used Nickleson) "Can't handle the truth".
One honest person with the truth, doesn't have to be in the correct grammer either, can make a difference. We Ain't Fergittin. Guess that is really what it boils down to.
