According to a certain Mark Halpern, we linguists will soon be looking for
another line of work. You can read all about it in his The End of
Linguistics: Taking the Language Back from Nature - and Linguists at
< http://www.vocabula.com/VRJULY01Halpern.htm >. And if you've got a strong
stomach and think you can stand another dose of linguist-bashing, take a look
at Why Linguists Are Not to be Trusted on Language Usage at
< http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Parthenon/4942/helpern.html >. Enjoy!
