In a post below I mention how I love the way words drift in meaning. What I hate is the way names of things are changed for either purposes of aggrandisement or because the original may have been too explicit in its purpose.

I notice in today's paper that "body bags" is no longer an approved term. The new Pentagon-speak is "transfer tubes". & I always thought that was just the passage that Borg had missing between his mouth & his brain.
