FYI: the "word of the year" was mentioned on WCBS AM

over the weekend, I think Saturday morning. (Oh, that's

New York City, 880 on the AM dial.) They cited it as

"soccer mom" and also mentioned "most controversial"

being "Ebonics." I was pleased to hear the mention on

a radio station that a lot of people listen to; I had

a pleasant flash of "that's us."
