When is a trim a slash?...

I just read online that Sony is "trimming" 20,000 jobs.

20,000 jobs.


I'll bet that to at least 20,000 people, that is NOT "trimming". In fact, I'll bet they have a whole other four-letter word for it.

What kind of world do we live in where we cannot even face the reality around us? Where we have to find nicer words for atrocities, lest they be real? But then, why should this surprise me? Just look at Shrub's war - no, not the one in Iraq, though that is one - one the American people by destoying our liberty, our right to breath, our government.

I guess he's "trimming", too.
