What's in a Word?

January 5, 2010
The paper listed words/phrases that people feel should be banned from the lexicon: czar (as in drug czar, media czar, etc); shovel-ready; tweet.

Later I read an article discussing a sports matchup, and someone was quoted as saying that the teams involved “weren’t the sexiest matchup…” (I tried REALLY HARD to find it so I could quote it exactly, but can’t).

I hereby nominate “sexy” as the most mis-used word.
