"shocking" news

No, much older. Actually, the "cunning linguist" part doesn't have anything to do with who it is. I just always leave "...cunning linguist" as part of my title since I was a linguistics major and am fluent in five languages. BTW, the location goes along with the persona now, too.

In it I declared that I would pass up Baley within the week, which I easily accomplished. I don't remember ever making any wild claims such as reac...
