My latest Tribune language column:

I wanted to include what I saw last month at ESPN.com, which asserted that the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl "with talent, passion and values." Pity the poor Carolina Panthers, defeated by a last-second field goal, who presumably are morally lax.

My B&C blog is idle this week; it returns next week with a roundup of the month's news and book reviews.
