Meta-For Nothing: Ecosystem

mg_orlando.jpg
Michael Goldberg

Commentator Michael Goldberg is trying to come up with a decoder ring that will help him translate gobbledygook into something he can understand.  One kind of verbal smokescreen he tries to see through is phony metaphors.  In this piece, he attacks the reckless use of the word “ecosystem”.  His rants and reflections, and work by other area writers, can be heard Sunday nights at 9 pm on Stay Human, words and music for spirit and courage.
