If I hear the phrase, "Watershed moment" one more time, I think I might scream.
Perhaps it's the economy.  Perhaps it's the GOP presidential primaries.  Perhaps it's the looming onset of APPR.    Perhaps it's the 2% tax cap.  Whatever the reason, whenever I turn on the t.v., someone is uttering this same phrase.  By the very definition, all of these moments cannot possibly be watershed moments.  So I propose a watershed moment for the phrase, "Watershed moment."  R.I.P.
Happy reading,
