Just like, before 911, I had never heard ANYONE use the word "homeland" to describe the US. It immediately made me think of Nazis calling Germany
the "Fatherland" when no one had called it that before.
I'm sure to you younguns it seems perfectly normal, but it really creeped me out right away. And of course we now have homeland security. Hmmmm.
On another note, I had never heard anyone call a razor knife a box cutter, and I had been using those things for years.
