The middle of the day matters, too

It’s literally impossible to get through a news talk program anymore without some guest using the phrase, “At the end of the day.” Who cares about the end of the day? The truth is, nothing gets done at the end of the day.

This is a problem that reaches across the aisle, so it demands a bipartisan solution.

The overuse of “the end of the day” rises to the level of a linguistic high crime.

Is the phrase supposed to lend gravitas to their comments?

I suppose they think that at the end of the day they’ll get closure.

At mid-evening, I just wish they’d lay off the worn out catchphrases and buzzwords.
