"For most of history, we had undebatable definitions of words such as 'bailout' and 'bankruptcy.' We understood the former as an undeserved public grant, and the latter as an inability to pay existing bills. Whatever your particular beliefs about these concepts, their meanings were at least agreed upon. Sadly, that’s not the case during a deficit crisis that is seeing language redefined on ideological terms." (03/04/11)
