William B. Eustis suggests there’s surely a better way to say:
“Drugs and alcohol.” — I know that this is a style
required by some organizations. It is clearly redundant and suggests
that alcohol is not a drug.
“Substance abuse.” – What substance is being abused?
Walking on my lawn could be considered “SA.”
“Self-titled.” (As in: “Joe Blow’s new self
– titled CDƒ”) What, the CD gave itself a name? Either use
the title or use the perfectly useful “eponymous” and make
’em look it up.
A further note on “At this point in time.” – Not
only is this used for “now,” it has also become a bad synonym
