Off- and Then On-Topic: An Uncategorical Update
A few days ago I asked about the difference between categorically denying something, and uncategorically denying it. Received a nice e-mail from John Holowach that contained a link to this William Safire article. The Safire article does not directly ask about categorical/uncategorical, but there is an implicit suggestion, seconded by Mr. Holowach, that "uncategorical" is not a word -- which doesn't stop it from being used, of course.
John Holowach is both countering the drug czar's office on cannabis and filming a documentary. His FAQ, too, is worth a visit: start here and click through.
