Well said, Elliott.

I would add that this very topic was addressed by Dr. Jernigan in his 1993 
article, "The Pitfalls of Political Correctness." When we begin to soften 
language in the name of emotional sensitivity, we often lose focus. Words 
mean things. I submit that if we alter our wording, we will inevitably alter 
the fundamental concepts that have afforded us cohesion as an organization.
