Helping the AP’s Style Guide April 2, 2013

The AP decides it’ll no longer use the term “illegal immigrant:”

The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally

Only “an action,” huh?

All right, how about we call them “illegal immigrators?”

America-nauts.

You know, that’s actually pretty good. I should be in marketing.

Won’t you help these poor people, the America-nots, in their never-ending fight to to secure a better life for their families and free birth control?

#17 was me. As far as I know, I’m not Dave’s mom.

Geoff had a good one with #9. I’m just pointing that out to be fair.
