Give it a rest

I read a lot of words. It's a big part of my job, always has been. And so it takes a lot to make me sick of a word. But "craft" as a verb – Oregon media types, enough already! Especially when referring to a politician or her staff drafting proposed legislation. We're all fed up with it. Yuck!


  1. I can deal with the adjective. Even "craft beer," fine. But "crafting a bill"? Maybe once a decade.

  2. I may be daft,
    But it’s time we should draft
    A plan to finally do away,
    With the overuse of the verb ‘craft’.

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
