Another un-PC term: "Bouncer" [LINK]

Of all the...

The restauranteur Paul Sweeney considers the word "bouncer" an offensive term, insisting others characterize accused murderer Darryl Littlejohn as a "door person." I wouldn't exactly call this "political correctness," since the offending term has no apparent political dimension, but the underlying problem is the same: there appears to be no limit to our willingness to indulge our most frail sensibilities at the expense of common sense. Having once worked as a (yes) bouncer, I'd like to give this trend the old heave-ho.
