political correctness

Listened this morning to a fascinating BBC broadcast on the  increasing civilian use of unmanned aerial vehicles.

These UAVs, or drones, are already in use in hazardous places such as forest and other fires and radiation areas and for public safety and traffic control. The program explored the increasing private use, such as in communications  and for parcel delivery, ranging from bulk shipments to inaccessible places to home pizza delivery.

The program's pace and style was marred, however by one commentator's jarring use of the term "unpersoned vehicle".

Another reason to let Texas secede.
