I just heard a newscaster say, "For all intensive purposes." Argggghhhhh. What does that mean? It's "for all intents and purposes," for crying out loud, which totally changes the meaning of what was uttered! Doesn't anyone know how to use a dictionary any more? Some of my favorites: Most unique. There is no such thing! It's either unique or it's not. One of the only. Once again, it's either the only one or it's not. Try "one of the few" on for size. First annual. If it's the first, it can't be annual. What if the first one sucks enough that there isn't a second? It's inaugural. New and improved. Is it new or is it improved? Or did the new one suck so much they had to improve it before they turned it loose on the public? OK, I feel better now!
