Before removing the mote from thy brothers.
So we learned last week that the State Dept. has a Chief Diversity officer- or something.
He doesn't like some of our common phrases-
Hold down the fort
Rule of thumb- which he got wrong because he's (probably) a Lib.
The rule of thumb was either estimating whatever they called a yard back then, OR an inch (the length of the last joint)
But being a Liberal, he want's everyone else to give up their common phraseology to go with something even less specific and longer to say.
BTW Chief..............isn't YOUR title kind of demeaning to our Indio-American Amerinds?
