Do 'do-rag' or don't do 'do-rag'?

"Soon after George W. Bush became president, Candy Crowley of CNN recalled having asked him, years before, about "the nuance of your answer." She recollected in 2001, "He looked at me, and he said, 'In Texas, we don't do nuance.'" - очень милая заметка вильяма сэйфира (William Safire) об истории возникновения и использовании оборотов с do - like in 'do business'.

шуточки про 'do-rag' do bonus track.

а ещё там есть хороший рассказ про pop-up (с него, собственно, статья и начинается). короче - William Safire - On Language
