cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
I have long enjoyed my copy of a book called The Portable Curmudgeon and use its 'modern' definition in my Blog overview. The book was compiled by a fellow by the name of Jon Winokur and is published by the New American Library. Following are some curmudgeonly comments that struck me over the past few days:
I had a conversation earlier today with an associate on the subject of secure e-mails. As we digressed he opined that he believes people born after a certain time have actually evolved to the point that they are more capable of absorbing technology. I'm a bit of a skeptic on that count...but I can't quite put it out of my mind entirely.
