Thanks, Jerry. I've been writing a weekly column for the WSJ on words
in the news for a few months now. I'm keeping an archive on my
website, with links to the columns:

For columns that are paywalled (including the latest on "death
spiral"), I include links to Google+ posts that allow non-subscribers
to get through the paywall. (One can also Google on the column titles
to get through.)
