> Hi Gerald,
> 
> I'm a Books and Culture writer at HuffPost, and I'm working on an article about the phrase "dumpster fire" and its rather sudden ubiquity as
> an insult. I'm interested in speaking to lexicographers like yourself who might have some insight on its rise to popularity.
> 
> Please let me know if you'd be interested in speaking to me for the article; I'd love to hear your thoughts!

> Best,
