"Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man." -- Heidegger
George Saunders on Borat
I'm really not sure what I think of this. It's the only piece of Saunders' writing that has not made me laugh (unlike Borat). He seems to be taking Baron Cohen to task on the exploitation issue, which is fair enough. But anyone could do that -- when I see me some Saunders, I want me some Saunders.
