Orwell Lives!!!

As a followup to my last few postings, QED has a great post (along with a link to an essay by Orwell) that is a must read and a sad commentary on academics and intellectuals.

Orwell's essay was one of the first I had to read in English Comp. I summarized one of his principles with the sentence “Don’t use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.” My professor was not amused.
