A president’s words have the power to move markets. They can start wars or broker peace. They can summon our better angels or awaken our worst instincts. You simply cannot fake your way through this job.

George Floyd’s last words, ‘I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe,’ they’ve echoed all across this nation, quite frankly around the world. For the president to try to put any other words in the mouth of George Floyd I frankly think is despicable.

Gibberish rap is – I freestyle all the time, just hangin’ out with friends. And sometimes when I’m freestyling, I’ll lose my flow, you know, but I’ll still wanna – I don’t wanna just stop rapping because I lose my flow. So I’ll just put in nonsense words till I can bring in regular words again.
– Hannibal Buress
Sticks and stones may break bones, but words do more damage than most people can imagine. Especially name-calling. ‘You’re dangerous!’ ‘Deceived.’ ‘A false prophet.’ ‘A compromiser!’ Charges like these by young-earth leaders, both spoken and implied, are intended to discredit, maim, and crush old-earth advocates, including me.

My parents both work in publishing, and I was a bright, academic kind of kid, and I read a lot of books, and when you read a lot, I guess the muscle that gets exercised is where you can hear the voices in your head. You can turn words into pictures and into sounds and into colours and smells.
