“You’re the only person in your line of work I know” What about Chomsky?  Nobody on MSNBC knows him?  He is a linguist but maybe you don’t want him because he is a self proclaimed politician and climate scientist instead.  You never hear him using his actual linguist training for anything but instead gives his opinion on other things.  At least John McWhorter is using his training for which it was intended.

Boreme editor is obsessed with him, not me.  I think all of his videos where he talks about anything other than linguistic things should be taken of this site.

Weird, it looks like it's you who brought him up on this page.  

The first step is admitting it.
