Word jihad 

Commenting on a STrib editorial (why do you torture yourself so, Mitch?) Shot In The Dark comments:
The Gannon/Guckert 'kerfuffle' (there's a word that's gone from cute to intolerable in record time)

The word "kerfuffle" now appears even on a billboard for a local cafe, suggesting you eat there to get away from the k********. That is bloody hell enough. The k-word is hereby banned from Scholars. MOB and other blogrolled writers are warned that repeated use of this word may lead to deletion from the Scholars' List of Honor.
