Boiling Frogs

Sibil Edmonds has got a great blog, and I've been following her story for years. She worked for the CIA as translator, tried to do some whistleblowing about dodgy stuff she was translating, and then had a gagging order placed on her for years. Well, now it's off, and as she says in her blog, it's the home of the irate minority. Count me in!

The term boiling frogs comes from the old proverb that says if you turn the heat up little-by-little, incrementally, on some frogs in a pan, they won't realise they're being cooked until it's too late to jump out. Horrible image: do you think it could apply to us too?
