  1. Watch for aliens on the amazing Pyramid Cam.

  2. Someone got so upset over a frequently misused phrase that an entire website was created with t-shirt sales and a mail archive.

  3. We Make Money Not Art went to the Murakami exhibit and saw cool things.

"begging the question"

"Begging the question" always seemed to me such an opaque piece of jargon that it's no surprise that people misconstrued it and then misuse it.

The jargon of argumentation is as screwed up as the grammarian jargon. ("Comma splice", "dangling modifier", etc.)
