More anti-gun hysteria

Say Uncle notes that you can't even call those little dots at the beginning of an itemized list "bullets" anymore. From a NY teacher:

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.
I wonder if they'll have zero-tolerance for bullet points, whereby teachers and students using the marks will be automatically extricated.

How about "the marks formerly known as 'bullet points'"?

I see our education bureaucracy continues its time-wasting, politically correct absurdities.

Don't create bulletins or use bulletin boards. Don't go to Japan and ride a bullet train. Don't bite the bullet. Don't create something that's bulletproof. Don't refer to a great new drug as a magic bullet or a great new antibiotic as a silver bullet. Don't refer to a rhabdovirus as bullet-shaped.

No use of words related to weapons or ammo is allowed. So, remember, the pen is mightier than the long, thin, metal thingie with a handle.

Dr. T, you aren't referring to a CARTRIDGE pen, are you?

You know how we laugh at how stupid people used to be? Like Victorians calling table legs "limbs"? I used to wonder what we do that people in the future will laugh at. Now I know.
