Viewer Response: Certainly Not a Gentleman (6/17/08)

Earlier this month, when a local woman was raped at gunpoint by an unknown assailant, I was amazed to hear the police spokeswoman refer to the rapist as a "gentleman." This was a gross misuse of the English language.

The police are hardly the only offenders, but words still have meaning. And if this is the best we can do in using them, we're in sad shape, indeed.
