NLA Discussion:The newest on metaphors

I'm finding this thread about metaphors so deeply and widely
useful--probably one of the most fecund discussions we could have about
policy, because it's on a "meta" level and backs up the notion that every
policy, no matter its protestations of neutrality, is grounded in an
ideology. Hope it continues and can be a lens through which we read
issues that come up in the future.
Just one question: I read Dale Cyphert's note about "decent" vs.
"indecent" jobs as very much in quotation marks, i.e. an *ironic*
statement of dominant perception rather than his own point of view. This
reading fits a lot better with other posts he's made than the idea that
suddenly he would be advocating assembly-line lives for everyone... Dale,
could you clear this up?
