Be it resolved that…

Hi Tom,

The number one overused word today (at least in terms of politics) is “resolve.” I’d appreciate a mention of this nauseating term at your earliest convenience. Thanks.

  1. I’m not sure which use of “resolve” it is to which you object. In politics, it’s usually a steal from the Gettysburg Address.

    In labor negotiations, I have heard it used this way: “We don’t want to proceed to the economic issues till we get a resolve on the remaining non-economic ones.” Yuk.
