This just in...
Bill Maher has his New Rules, I'll have "This just in..."
Just my thoughts on things in general, mostly things that piss me off.
Anyway - This just in...
No more using the letter Z at the end of words to replace the letter S.
I saw a sign on the way to work today that said - "Come to our Kidz Day."
Putting a Z at the end of a word does not make it cooler.
The letter S has been fulfilling the making words plural role for centuries and has been doing a very good job of it, no need for a substitute.
This may seem like a small thing but it's one of a series of things that have been creeping into our language, things like jamming two words together - Reaganocmics, or Corporate-Speak (which is a whole other subject - outsourcing, god, the mere typing of that word creeps me out).
Please, for the love of all that is holy, make the insanity stop.
