Here is an article which fascinated me.  Every single one of the linguistic
truisms about linguistic equality we hold so dear are taken to task, by a
non-linguist.  And I found myself thinking that, even though he doesn't
know all the details or the finer points of the theories he discusses, he
shows a real, though non-expert, understanding of them.  I came away
thinking: he'll make linguists mad, but this guy's got a point.
