The End Of "I Digress"

"I digress," especially when preluded by a "but," may be the most overused term in modern Western commentary.  We've become saturated in op-ed digressions, diluting the phrase to the point of indifference.  Find some room in the back of your closet.  Put it in storage.  Burn it.  Forget you ever had it. Whatever you do, don't wear it in public.   It went out of style years ago.
