Shouldn't the word "heinous" be banned?

President Obama used it in relation to the Boston bombings.

It sounds too much like "anus."

"Diaspora" is another word which should be banned. It sounds too much like both "diapers" and "aspirin."

In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered particularly heinous.

Wasn't "Diaspora" a hit song by the Eagles?

Heinous is a perfectly suitable word for the Boston bombings that left an 8 year old dead and cost his little sister her leg. Whoever planted the bombs had to know there would be children in the area.

I have to say that the President's delivery was terrible. He has this staccato-like rhythm to his speaking that was very unappealing. It leaves him sounding like he's just going through a routine. Very uneffective IMO. Did he always speak like this? - maybe cause I heard it on the radio I focused more on the sound. Needs work. Of course I was in the small minority that thought Reagan was a terrible speaker.

Except for R2 and R3, the rest of you aren't very bright, are you? Tee hee.
