Linguistically speaking...

...is the opposite of an underdog an overdog? How come no one ever talks about those?

And why do absentee ballots require additional postage?


Blogger Lawrence said...

Overdog would be a great name for a military operation. Preferably one that involves laughing gas.

As for absentee ballots . . . maybe to dissuade certain groups of people from voting? Seems to be a lot of that going around.

There was definitely a LOT of it going around, including in my state. But in this case I'm more inclined to assume that no one thought to prepay the postage, or get an exemption, or whatever it is that you do -- I doubt that most people who were otherwise going to vote changed their mind because it required a 39-cent stamp. But it would be a nice touch if it didn't require it.
