  1. Today, Inslee Tweeted, “WATCH: I’m holding a media availability at 2:30 PM today.”

    1. We need to start building a consensus here on the spewing of catchphrases. At the end of the day, I think Dick Ellingson should take the lead on this 360 review. In the use of the English language, Dick is sticking to his core competency and can uniquely focus on this critical area. Reviewing other comments here, there are a lot of low hanging fruit, and we need to move the needle. We must be results-driven, no pushback because it is mission-critical. By leveraging our synergies, we can make a paradigm shift in terms of conversation. That having been said, Dick, please ping me when you feel it is time to revisit this subject.

  2. Nice article up to the point where the phrase “speak truth to power” was used. Then I had to turn it off. Buzzwords and catch phrases, please don’t.

    1. I totally agree, Jason! Don’t describe a friend that way. Better: “What a sweetheart! She takes B. S. from nobody! Politicians and other liars run from her!”

      But the politicrap that still burns me decades later is, “In my judgment” instead of “In my opinion”, used by judgmental politicians empty of judgment skills yet overflowing with opinions.

  3. Wishing Margaret a happy retirement. As you know, we made a few appearances on New Day, the King 5 talk show. As I mentioned on another broadcasting blog, Margaret was always a pleasure to work with. I always enjoyed her producer Su, who was always very good at making us feel comfortable on the show.
