What is POFP?

Why do lawyers refer to long documents as briefs and
18-year olds as infants? Why do they use so much Latin when so few of their
clients are Ancient Romans? Is it a conspiracy?

Legalese Hall of Shame; a glossary of legal words linked to Adam Freedman's

Denounce and Reject

For those who were intrigued -- but perhaps confused -- by last Tuesday's linguistic squabble between Hillary and Barack over the differences between "denouncing" and "rejecting" Louis Farrakhan, POFP has kindly deconstructed the whole thing. See my piece in today's New York Times for the real story!

Obama analysis good but incomplete. He adhered to the denounce definition. Go back and look and listen to his response on denounce as he stated that since (Farrakhan hadn't offered his support he didn't believe he had to reject it. This is important for you to comment on if you want readers tohave confidence in your pronouncements. Thanks.
