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.
