Great links, Ally — keep ’em coming. As a rhetorician, I was interested in the “rhetoric matters” headline — part of rhetoric is definition, but a huge part of modern rhetorical theory is all about joining people through the giving of reasons and the willingness to listen to the reasons of others. Too many people think of rhetoric as “mere rhetoric,” or spin and smoke and mirrors, and forget the more powerful and thoughtful sense of the word as discussion and decision-making in an open society.
