Jose Carillo's Forum


The Lounge is the newly expanded free-talk section of the Forum. You can post anything here about any topic outside English grammar and usage. Wide-ranging discussions and debates will be allowed in the Lounge subject only to the condition that the subjects are not unlawful, obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, and threatening. As in the Forum’s sections on English grammar and usage, we expect discussants to keep the Lounge a vibrant venue for relevant, healthy, and civilized discussions, not impertinent, angry, or violent ones.

So if you have any non-grammar thought or idea you’d like to share, make the Lounge the sounding board for it now! Let your fellow Forum members help you germinate the seed of that idea if it’s a good one—or terminate it if it turns out to be otherwise.

Celebrating the Holiday Season with the element of surprise

In the spirit of the Holiday Season, I am posting here in The Lounge a link to a YouTube video of a performance of the “Hallelujah Chorus” by a choir disguised as shoppers in a food court mall in Welland, Ontario. Don’t you wish that a surprising treat like this could be replicated in our country many times over? It’s not too late! After all, we have a well-deserved reputation as a singing people and our country is supposed to celebrate the longest Christmas Season in the world.

I came across the link to that video in “Faith Matters: The Kingdom of God in A Food Court,” a very interesting article by Walter Russell Mead in the December 5, 2-010 issue of I highly recommend it for your reading.

Read Walter Russell Mead’s “Faith Matters” in now!
