Weird but strange. In the middle of today's Globe endorsement of the Shannon O'Brien/Chris Gabrieli ticket is this bizarre phrase: "strong but workable." As in:
Partly thanks to Gabrieli, a policy omnivore, the Democratic ticket has advanced several strong but workable approaches to the economy, education, and health care.
Try rolling "weak and workable" around your tongue. Or "strong and impractical." Isn't anyone thinking over there?
