  • Oh goodie. I haven’t had someone blow smoke up my ass in a while. Count me in!

  • Too bad the Chancellor doesn’t know the difference between translation and interpretation.

    • I’m not clear what your quibble with the word choice is — Wikipedia says that translation is”the communication of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text” and that interpreting is “the facilitating of oral or sign-language communication between users of different languages,” so the usage in the flyer sounds correct to me.
      I’ve seen a lot of D.C. government flyers, press releases, etc. with poor syntax or word choice, but this isn’t one of them.

    • Have you never heard of an interpreter?
