Seriously, someone got paid to write that. I should sue the trib for the 5 minutes it took to read it.

Oh, and also "toates". That'll get you a wunkin' too. SO disappointed that el Guante is quoted in this terrible article. But at least he's advocating losing words and not using them.

Can we lose "blog" or "blogger". Better yet, can we just lose people who write "blogs" and refer to themselves as "bloggers"?
