I agree.

And I wasn't really suggesting "politically correct speech."  I was in 
fact saying we should search for new ways to express new ideas, ones 
that aren't so loaded with past connotations.

Granted we don't (at least I don't) always have time to discuss every 
little thing to its conclusion, so sometimes we must settle for sloppy 
language. :)
