    If I hear the phrase 'Abundance of Caution' one more time, I am going to break something with my head. These freaking reporters get something like that stuck in their collective brain (I think they all share the same one) and it gets repeated ad nauseum. For the love of God, someone say something catchy in the presence of one of them, quick! (As long as it isn't shock and awe) Eric

    The nation should have a dialogue about over used buzz words in the media.

    I hope folks see what I did there.

    When it starts getting repetitive I find something else to watch. It gets old after a while.

    I remember I had never heard the word vitriol before the Tucson shooting. After, every damn talking head was saying it repeatedly. It's kinda like the media is a word-a-day calendar.

    I'm picturing Eric sitting in front of a wall of screens, each with a different network, screaming "JAMBOG!!" at the top of his lungs.

    I think the latest catch phrase lacks gravitas...

    Maybe NOT having TV is a great thing, as a lot of these buzz words/phrases pass me by!

    Good grief. There it goes again. The Mass State Police guy just said they will be blowing up a house later, out of 'An Abundance of Caution'. That phrase is like a virus.

    I think " a shopping cart of recklessness" sounds a lot more fun, exciting and productive.

    Out of a shopping cart of recklessness, we assaulted the building on full auto with the k9 team following and totally ventilated the perp, ending the matter.

    Just once
    Just freakin once i want to hear that.

    That is an interesting explanation for blowing up evidence. Does that mean they plan on killing the other suspect so there is no need for the evidence? Or does it mean That mean they don't want to be able to successfully prosecute the other guy, because they will have destroyed the evidence.

    I would be stunned to hear that no one would volunteer to go in and get things out. They won't even risk sending in a robot?

    Its common sense that someone should use an abundance of caution.

    "Things are changing minute by minute."




    I am going to go way out on a limb here and suggest this may be a safety issue.

    We may have a new contender, folks. I have heard the term 'Radicalize' 157 times, in the last three hours.

    I used to know a girl with radical eyes. She was a crazy *****. Eric
