When words are cheap

  1. The internet fools us into thinking that words are cheap. Fifty pesos for a hundred words? What a bargain!
  2. A mass of letters could come cheap. Ideas, the ones that percolate…the ones that stain our walls, the ones that are rest on our foreheads as we sleep, ideas that bother, enthrall, and enrage — these ideas have no price.
  3. Ideas make words weapons. Word-wielders carry murderous instruments…at the tips of their fingers and in their furrowed brows.
