Alpo Accounts: They're changing the words again 

It used to be "privatization." Then it was "personal accounts." Now it's "modernization." Edwin Chen of the LA Times dutifully takes dictation in the headline: Bush Urges Modernization of Social Security. The Amazin' Froomkin gives the heads up:

Expect to hear a lot more of this new buzzword at the White House when it comes to Social Security: Modernization.

Memo to Unka Karl:

You can't buff a turd.

People are smart enough to look through the words to see what's behind them. And they don't like what they see.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If there's any problem, make the payroll tax a tad more progressive, and you're done.
