[***As an online journalist, I take my commitment to objectivity very seriously.    You know this from my extensive body of work at this site.   With that said, and with no intention to influence the vote, I am going to go ahead and say the winner should be Camp Hopefully.  I'm telling you, this organization is attracted to That Word (I refuse to use it again in this column) like flies to a hog farm in Northern Missouri--the same flies that then go buzzing around and ruining farmers' picnics.

For perspective, That Word is the verbal equivalent of dropping your drawers and running the base paths with your thumb in your mouth, and with your hat on backwards at that.    Imagine, for instance, if you asked a subordinate if she planned to get you that project on time, and her response was...That Word.   See what I mean?   Take all of things wrong with writing in the passive voice, and combine them with the image of a fat man at the swimming pool in his speedo from two seasons ago, and you have something merely approaching the foul and insidious effect of using That Word.   

But, hey, I don't mean to influence your vote or anything.]
