I was disappointed to see The Daily Advance print such a negative story, “Brooks, Horton blast probe” on the front page of Monday’s edition along with one touting the success of the N.C. Potato Festival. This story was nothing but a forum for Elizabeth City City Councilors Michael Brooks and Darius Horton to continue their divisive bloviating and their immature, childish, and divisive rantings.

Great Word

Bloviate - To discourse at length in a pompous or boastful manner.

Thank you for expanding my vocabulary. While I was researching bloviate I found: Fetzering - Noun:

1. The act of making an unfounded or unsubstantiated claim.

2. In philosophy, a method of debate or discussion based on the premise of: I think, therefore I am. I think you're wrong. therefore you are.

3. The act of disagreeing by employing rancor, name calling, ad hominem attacks or straw man argument.

Both are so right on the money.
