Scott Allen

Well said, Alan! I started thinking I was the only one in the universe who's annoyed by such hyperbolic cliches... Ahem. Anyway, this ranks up there with the ridiculous marketing catch phrase: "Hurry! Supplies are limited!" Really? And to think I was under the mistaken impression that there was an INFINITE number of widgets for me to purchase at this "unbelievably low price"...

Bob O'Malley

The lines between media, advertising and entertainment are becoming more and more blurred. Blatant bias is now commonplace in the media. Eventually, though, this will harm the media. Only trusted (read: objective) news sources will be successful while the rest of the garbage will be as relevant and reliable as junk mail.

Rick Baker

Alan, I have to say, it's impossible to overstate the importance of your article on cliche's...

Richard Wilson

The importance of overstating the impossible may be directly proportional to the practice of understating of the obvious...see also political press releases.

Teresa Hubley

I guess refusing to overstate the importance of something is how we separate the wheat from the chaff.
