Stuffing the ballot box for 2005
You may have seen this elsewhere, but "blog" has been named the word of the year by Merriam-Webster dictionary. What you may not know is how the award came about: it was simply the most searched word in their online dictionary for the first 11 months of the year. So, my question is, which word(s) would we like to see atop the list next year. If we all committed to searching for it several times a day, we just might have all the power. Hell, defenestration is number 10, so how many times would we really have to search to get a word to crack the list? More importantly, what word would we like to imprint on the 2005 yearbooks? Any ideas?
