Dr. Metablog is the nom de blague of Vivian de St. Vrain, the pen name of a resident of the mountain west who writes about language, books, politics, or whatever else comes to mind. Under the name Otto Onions (Oh NIGH uns), Vivian de St. Vrain is the author of "The Big Book of False Etymologies" (Oxford, 1978) and, writing as Amber Feldhammer, is editor of the classic anthology of confessional poetry, "My Underwear" (Virago, 1997).
At Ozo's, a woman jumps the queue. A man standing on the line taps her on the shoulder. "Excuse me, but you've jumped the line." Woman: "You ought to keep your hands to yourself." Man: "Wow, you crash the line, and you have the grievance. So 'entitled.' You must be a Romney supporter." Woman (outraged): "I am not a Republican." Man: "Then stop acting like one."
