I've written about it before, and it's time for a refresher course.
It deals with those who write radio and TV news. Any time someone does something bad at this time of year, they are referred to as a "Grinch." I've seen it a few times in recent days, in stories dealing with the theft of Christmas trees, holiday decorations, and packages left on front porches.
Stop! Please! It's trite and it's become a cliche.
Come on brethren. We're better than this.
And before your fingers hit the keyboards to type G R I N C H one more time, think of this. The Grinch was transformed into a nice guy at the end. Porch pirates and decoration thieves, in real life, don't seem to be on the road to redemption.
