The dreaded b-word

The other day I opined to Ed Cone that it would be a watershed day when newspapers (the example at hand was the Times) decided they could use the word "blog" ("word of the year" last year, after all) without the patient explanation that it is short for "weblog." It is a most unfortunate excuse for a word, but a real word it is.

Now the truth comes out: there are other reasons why journalists can't bring themselves to say "blog."
