Hunt continues for mistakenly freed murderers in Florida

Two convicted killers on the loose in Florida, after being released from prison by mistake.

Authorities still have not located Charles Walker or Joseph Jenkins, who were supposed to be serving life sentences for murder. Both men were accidentally released, because of what prison officials are called "forged documents."

NEW WORD ORDER: Are you a Ted “Cruzette”?

Language is power and when someone invents or uses a new word or term gaining power, we recognize it.

Maureen Dowd began her recent column, "Mad Tea Party," with the words:
"How awful are Ted Cruz and his Cruzettes?"

They have done the impossible. They have made Americans look back at the Bush II era, the most reckless wrecking ball in American history, with relative nostalgia.”

The term “Cruzette," has become an increasingly popular, mostly derogatory, way to describe followers of Ted Cruz in recent days. It has been used as shorthand by bloggers, broadcasters and casual observers on social media.

What do you think of the term? Are you a "Cruzette"? Is he a hero or a villain How much power do you think Ted Cruz has in the GOP? Too much? Too little? Exactly the right amount.

Let us know in the comment section below.
