On Sound Philosophy

The Journal Times today reported that the Wisconsin School for the Deaf "soundly" defeated Union Grove Christian in basketball. After recovering from the profound insensitivity of the JT, I naturally began to ponder the age old philosophical question: If a basketball team falls in the woods....does it make a sound?

Now for the perpetually aggrieved, this post is intended as a playful take on our language rather than an effort to demean anyone with a handicap. But feel free to mock the presumably all-white Christian males who lost the game.
