Spoiler Alert: 2013 Banished Words List released
While the U.S. Congress has been kicking the can down the road and inching closer to the fiscal cliff, the word gurus at Lake Superior State University have doubled-down on their passion for the language and have released their 38th annual List of Words to be Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.

1. Well, I thought about what I want banished before I looked
and my top pet peeve word/phrase was "fiscal cliff", so I am with them there....it was their first too.
My next was "job creators", and there it was in the top ten. Some of them, I have never even heard of----which is obviously good.
Glad I'm not alone in wanting these terms to disappear.
