expression "Rum Shop Logic" figures in the news. A Rum
Shop is like a bar. And it's kinds of an excellent
expression that could well describe many a random or ill
considered utterance. News is certainly a relative thing
so I guess whether "Rum Shop Logic" is actually news
depends on a number of variables.
My own current
and worrying concerns are with a thing called Words With
Friends. Once a person recovers from the internal debate
about whether "Words With Friends" is a variation on the
theme of "Rum shop Logic" or possibly a Reddit Forum, they
discover that Words With Friends is like scrabble on the
internet. Cringe if you have to, but at least it's not
"charades" which of course is another word for the internet.
