Laconic about iconic…but…

(Canscene) — Madeline Ziniak has been elected as a Member of the Order of Canada. Asked to say a few words at a party given in her honour by the Canadian Ethnic Media Association, I deplored the promiscuous, widespread use of the words “icon” and “iconic.”

The words should be reserved for persons like Madeline who has achieved great distinction in her chosen profession with a unique record that truly merits her status as the icon of multicultural/multilingal broadcasting.
