Scrambling on the battle lines

From Ian Trontz:

  • Battle lines were drawn” to describe any controversy
    (sometimes preceded by “Tempers flared”).
  • Where (insert dominant local livestock here)
    outnumber humans” to describe any rural area.
  • Scrambling.” About half the nation’s newspapers
    must have run stories following the aborted American Airlines strike
    that read, “leaving the airline scrambling.” That would
    cause a disaster the likes of which the NTSB has never seen. The word
    never again should appear outside of a football story.
