Utterly Meaningless » Blog Archive » OT: THE PARTIAL PERSONALIZATION*

    This one is really interesting in an Inside Baseball kind of way. Social Security “reform” is heating up as an issue, but what’s perhaps more interesting is the way it’s being described. The terms “privatization” or “partial privatization” were scrapped in place of “private accounts” because the former polled badly. Now, the White House has apparently decided that “private accounts” is out and “personal accounts” is in. Esmé Squalor, anyone?

    *With apologies to Lemony Snicket.

    UPDATE: Tim pointed out that I mis-spelled Mrs. Squalor’s first name. That’s what I get for listening to the books instead of reading them. The spelling is correct, now.
