Not necessarily inappropriate


Oxford University Press is looking for “the word which represents the events or the moods of the 21st century.” Any suggestions?

The lawyer for Andrew Moonen, the Blackwater merc who shot the Iraqi vice president’s bodyguard dead and who was almost immediately hired by another mercenary outfit, speaks: “Being drunk, yeah, maybe that’s the basis for being fired. But I don’t think it’s necessarily inappropriate for another defense contractor to hire somebody because they happen to be drunk once in their life with some serious consequences.”
