Superior list needs your attention

Notable list: Lake Superior State University “List of Banned Words and Phrases”
Lake Superior State University
Usage: This is the 31st such list, which is published each New Year’s Day.
Comment: This year the list includes 17 (I don’t know why 17 – why not a round number like 10 or 20?) unwanted words like “talking points” and “97% Fat Free.” I had suggested “Two Thumbs Up,” now so overused that nearly every film promotion uses the term to recommend you see their film. Lake Superior State’s list is worth visiting if not taking entirely to heart.
