Sophisticated Term of Art #1: LIES! (The first in a series.)

"In her response, Petitioner asserts that her 18-year-old son is still living at home. Considering she withdrew him from High School in February 2008, ejected him from her home at that time, and he is now incarcerated in County Jail on felony charges, Petitioner's assertion can only be described as a 'lie.' "

Why settle for such a simple little word when a gloriously obfuscating phraseology like "knowing misrepresentation" is available?

Nothing new to report. Currently reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (fiction). Just finished Yoga for People Who Can't be Bothered to Do It, by Geoff Dyer (essays).
