Quoting William Safire:

"When was the last time you saw a person stop and think on television?"

The show 'Monk'.

I hope someone gives me a smack upside the head if I ever write tripe
like this.  I am all for thinking about how changes in language use
affect social relations but this highly selective reading of 'the good
old days' is embarrassing.
