Subject: A coinage worth keeping
Someone I know at one of the PBS stations tells me the people at the
station (and maybe other PBS stations) refer to their periodic telethons to
raise money to pay for some of their programming as "beg-athons." Now
there's a coinage worth keeping, in my opinion, since it comes closer to
reflect the real tone of those things. Agree?
