Speaking of the Demise of the English Language....

An article in this morning's Dallas Morning News included use by the reporter of the word "teensy."

That would be bad enough even in the entertainment section or a gossip or advice column. This word was actually found in the business section -- in an report on per capita income in various Texas counties.

The offending sentence: "That may be a statistical curiosity, given the county's teensy population...."

That is horrible.
