Annals of bad naming

‘Triggers’ indisputably are things hazardous to health. Very hazardous. I always think of a gunshot wound when I hear about ‘triggers’.

(OTOH I am not convinced that ‘public option’ is such a bad name. With that name it has gone from obscurity to prominence and popularity, perhaps in part because it makes reactionaries behave abusively. One of the tricks of public discourse is getting the ‘bad’ guys to abuse you in front of cameras.)
