This one needs some context, I think. William Safire writes a column in the New York Times magazine every week about language and how it is used in the world. Also every week, they find somebody to do an illustration using the title of his article. They asked me to do this week's, and I did it! "Baseballingo" refers to the use of baseball terms in things not related to baseball. It is timely because the baseball season is getting underway. I dedicate it to anybody who has been caught in San Francisco with a Dodgers hat on.
Thanks very much to Hilary Greenbaum for picking me out.
Also, I always want to be the kind of blog owner who just posts when he has things to post and makes no excuses for the amount of time in between, but I really should apologize. There has been a lot of work being done, but none of it can be shown for a while, so you'll have to take my word on it.
ALSO, I am a guest poster on itsnicethat.com this week. I have been doing some work with the guys who run it, and I never expected people I admire so much to be as nice as they are to me. They are very very nice.
