Wall Street Journal published an article corroborating my findings.

Erik Deckers blogged about unacceptable words

I can’t find the original post, but I read something on Erik Decker’s Blog, Laughing Stalk regarding words that should be banished due to their OVERUSE. From Erik’s blog, I went to the original article published on LSSU’s website.



Before announcing the offensive 17 or so words, the last paragraph in the original article states,



“In this spirit, LSSU presents its 2008 list, a PERFECT STORM… Continue

Warren Buffett and seven secrets



I have digg widget on my Google dashboard and I clicked an article about Warren Buffet--perhaps the wealthiest man on the face of the earth. Bill Gates and Warren play a version of one-upmanship by seeing who can donate the MOST amount of money to philanthropic causes.



Warren Buffett has been on my top ten hero list for some time, but after discovering he plays bridge online with Bill for twelve hours a week, he may move up to the… Continue

Why I live in Indiana- Forum Discussion from Smaller Indiana

Indianapolis is a big city with a small town feel, which appeals to me. Mostly I live in Indiana because it's home.



I grew up in Ft. Wayne and spent many summers at Enchanted Hills Playhouse--a Summer Stock Theatre near Syracuse. I played the role of Amaryllis in Meredith Wilson's The Music Man when I was nine years old. I have some wonderful memories of Lake Wawasee, Erik. Thanks for reminding me.



I spent a few months after I graduated, trying to land a teaching position… Continue
