The Dearth of Expertise 0

Writing, Frances Coleman is taken aback by the proliferation of self-appointed experts, which she thinks can be attributed in large part to “social” media. Follow the link for some examples of said expertise (under the circumstances, though, I shall proffer “expertism” as a more appropriate term).


Many of these self-appointed “experts,” of course, meet the classic definition of the term, in which

  • “x” is the mathematical symbol for an unknown quantity,
  • “spurt” is a drip under pressure, so, therefore,
  • “expert” is an unknown drip under pressure.

(Grammatical error corrected.)
