wordy go go

This morning's All things considered program featured  the Lake Superior State University 2012  list of words and phrases to be banished from English due to "overuse, misuse and general uselessness" (or is that Jerri Blank's description of her life on the streets?).

Here is a list of words and phrases  that have been causing hornet rose here to tut, rick her neck or fume when eavesdropping, listening to the wireless or watching the television.

period of time

back-story

literally

contagion

at the end of the day

hopefully
