Post to the Host:
my apologies, this is about a newspaper column that ran in February:
What is a carpet-chewer? My husband asked whether it was the same as a rug-muncher! I told him I didn't think so, since apparently Michael Moore fits the category.
Sorry for my ignorance.
A carpet-chewer is someone who reaches a state of blind fury and in his rage chews the carpet. An angry person, especially one who does it in public for effect.
