It seems that words do count! Several articles this past month caught my eye. You might enjoy reading them as well. Online bullying has gone to a new level. Facebook postings prompted three middle school students to be arrested. In the financial world the Vanguard Group did, according to a Seattle Times article, the “dumbest boo boo of the year” by printing the wrong ticker symbol in a prospectus.
Last, an Associated Press article listed the 2009 words and phrases that should be banished. “Shovel ready” was at the top of the list as was “czar,” “sexting,” “tweet,” and “teachable moment.” Thirty-five words in all. Do you have any to add to the list?
