Description

Terry Jones is known the world over as one of the beloved creators of the legendary Monty Python. But independent of the Python team, Jones has been writing columns targeting the Anglo-American response to September 11. His wit and venom are particularly focused on the messianic vernacular of Bush and Blair and the semantics of the "war on terror. " As Jones writes, "What really alarms me about President Bush's War on Terrorism' is the grammar. How do you wage war on an abstract noun? ...How is Terrorism' going to surrender? It's well known, in philological circles, that it's very hard for abstract nouns to surrender. " Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror proves that in times of high political anxiety, humor and irony are most potent antidotes to the spin emanating from the White House and Downing Street.
