Least Favorite Word:
One of the reasons I hate this word is that it is often misused. Even here, the word is being used as a synonym for eradication, when its original meaning is to lose one-tenth of your strength. Significant, yes, but not a total wipeout.
Other subscribers who dislike this word:
"We say that if America has entered the war to make the world safe for democracy, she must first make democracy safe in America."
