Haven't heard that epithet before. Nice.

|Mar-24-09|| ||Jim Bartle: "Haven't heard that epithet before. Nice."
I recoiled a bit to see the word "epithet" applied, thinking it meant a negative description of something, or a swear word or phrase.
But then I looked it up, and DCP used the word correctly, that it's meaning can be neutral. Funny how the use of words drifts away from the proper definition.
