Response to: a valuable guide to discourse

The first few lines of the Wikipedia entry on deconstruction (not to mention the whole article) are enlightening regarding this subject. I'm sure it grates on the nerves of someone who loves (ick) Derrida, but deconstruction has come to have a looser accepted meaning.

Maybe someday, in a better world where humanities professors are philosopher-kings, Derrida scholars can put a copyright on the word, so it can't be carelessly used by the unwashed ignorant masses.
