Today in our weekly PD it was mentioned that the region doesn't want us to use the term "bullet points" anymore because it has a negative connotation.
If I had a dollar for every idiotic complaint about "negative connotations," I could retire and have plenty left over for ammo.

Okay, I guess they are going to go back to using Wordperfect for DOS? Because every single piece of GUI wordprocessing software in existence calls them "bullets." Oops!

File this one under "Just When You Were SURE You Heard Everything."
I suppose the NYPD's ammo cartridges will all be blanks now?
What should be used instead? Non-Lethal Aiming Spots? Fat Black Circles?
