Hardly the Texas two step

By Debra Dobbins

In her column today on page A4, Kathleen Parker comments that TV news celebrities received more adulation at the Democrats’ convention in Charlotte than did big-name politicians.

She uses the French phrase, pas de deux, which literally means “step for two.” It more commonly means, though, a duet for two ballet performers.
