24. You don't need to apologize for your age.

Especially since I'm 55. This week I had to ask what "dog whistling" means. Apparently it is a coded reference meant to have mean something specific to a specific set of listeners/readers. In other words, when you use the term "dog whistling" you are making a coded reference to a coded reference.

I would prefer if people just said what they meant without coded references. For the record, I also don't know what "gas lighting" or "swift boating" mean. I used to know what "swift boating" means, but it's kind of a lame expression, so I forgot.

Thank you in advance for explaining either "gas lighting" or "swift boating", but you shouldn't bother because I wont remember.
