Term of uninterest

Following up on the discussion we had the other day about "person of interest," one of 2006's proposed banned words, comes this American Journalism Review article that, I think, lays out why it's a lousy term.

Author Donna Shaw puts it well: "Officialy, 'person of interest' means ... well, nothing."

Except, of course, for the "person of interest" who killed himself.
