Use People Friendly Language Always

I was surprised by Isaiah Washington's use of a politically incorrect term at the backstage of the Golden Globe Awards in January. It appears that he has lost his career as well as his cool. This is unfortunate, but words have more power, especially when used by role model.

Isaiah Washington has lost his job on the hit ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," five months after creating a furor with his use of an anti-gay slur.
So, it is not just Mr. Imus that gets called to task for saying the wrong thing when a microphone is present.

Always use people friendly language and you do not have to worry if there is a live mike.
