Ann Arbor Area Community News
Lake Superior State University (in the upper peninsula’s Sault Sainte Marie, MI, for non-Michiganders) releases an annual list of banished words—words they hope they’ll never hear again. The 2004 list includes pretty much everything you’d expect it to, from “flip-flopper” to “enemy combatants”.
“Blog” is included, with the note, “Many who nominated it were unsure of the meaning. Sounds like something your mother would slap you for saying.”
This blogger expects that none of these words are going anywhere, but you can submit your own wishful thinking for 2005 at http://www.lssu.edu/banished/submit_word.php
