Slave Revolt

I complain constantly about blogging that the readers are smarter than the bloggers. More evidence: a reader, Jeff Immelt, has successfully parodied my use of the expression “take it like a man,” and made me feel very oldfashioned. Apologies to all. I will attempt to modernize my cliches. (I’m not sure it’s a parody. Years ago Dan Menaker, in writing kind rejection letters at the New Yorker, a startling form in itself, said I had confused parody and satire. I think actually Immelt wrote a satire.)
