En Passant

I've been busy battling a Chomskyite in my comments, which is rather less productive than blogging, but someone has to do it. I just wanted to note in passing that the spell-checker built into Mozilla Thunderbird (the email companion to the Firefox browser) doesn't recognise the word "Thunderbird". Which strikes me as something of an oversight.

4 Battling Chomskyites is an unending quest, and we need more troops in the good fight. Won't you join us, TallDave?
