Words: Woe and Wonder

The CBC's web site includes and excellent monthly feature that discusses English usage (from a Canadian perspective, eh?): Words: Woe & Wonder. Is that flag at half-mast or half-staff? Why is the former leader of Iraq referred to as Saddam instead of Mr. Hussein? Delightful. [via metafilter]
