Since Arab Spring has been nominated among those Most Likely to Succeed,
I thought I'd ask--has anyone else noticed the creep of terms that riff
on the "spring" theme but substitute something else for "Arab"?
Obviously, searching for such things would be counterproductive, but if
you're aware of their existence, perhaps you're more likely to notice them.
