I saw the headline on cnn.com "Terror's tiny victim". No no no no no!!! "Terrorist's tiny victim" or "Bomb's tiny victim". Terror (a state of intense fear) had nothing to do with his death, but terrorists did. In the last 12 years, we've had a gradual shift in the media from using the word terrorist (from terrorism: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion) to simply terror. A terror didn't make any bombs, a terrorist did, and terror (fright) probably hasn't killed anyone involved, a bomb did.

Not that anyone listens to me... when 'ask' gets used as a noun and we have take-aways from meetings that don't involve food....
