I am a little obsessive about misuse of language and tend to nitpik, I know.
For instance, a headline for a news story on MSN.com today reads: “Is embalming really a necessity after death?”
“After death” is unnecessary in the sentence, because no one gets embalmed before death.
The headlline should read: “Is embalming necessary?”
Shorter and cleaner.
