Politicians are always calling things historic. Usually all that this means is “something that happened while I was in office”. --The Economist

  1. Yes, 'historic' is another term whose meaning has been bastardized through over-use. Communities love to describe their downtown areas as 'historic'...

    Waterloo is historic. Culloden is historic. Gettysburg, Shiloh, Bull Run - all historic.

    Downtown Port Washington??? It's just old...
