Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

When I say "weasels" I'm sure you know what I mean. But that won't stop me from explaining it for a few hundred more pages because it's the sort of thoroughness that you expect from a member of the intelligencia, or innteligentia, or whatever

Weasel Definitions

Throughout this book I will concoct new phrases and definitions so that my ideas are revolutionary. As you know, nothing worth knowing can be explained with regular words.

Weasel Zone: There's a gigantic gray area between good moral behavior and outright felonious activities. I call that the Weasel Zone and it's where most of life happens.

[The Weasel Zone is] sometimes also known as Weaselville, Weaseltown, the Way of the Weasel, Weaselopolis, and Redmond.
