Media: Attention Washington Times reporters...

Former Washington Times writer Eric Pfeiffer has published an internal Washington Times e-mail message sent to staffers yesterday on style changes at one of the most conservative newspapers in the nation.

Among other things, the Times will now use the word "gay" instead of "homosexual" (except in clinical references or references to sexual activity), call undocumented immigrants "illegal immigrants" instead of "illegal aliens" and remove so-called "scare quotes" from the phrase "gay marriage" - now preferred over "homosexual marriage."

All good developments.
