Written on S&W Salvation:

Shame on METROPULSE for succumbing to the disease of "Political Correctness." Seems instead of just giving its readers the story in a plain unvarnished way, METROPULSE seems to be inclined to tap-dance around the names and terms folks use to accommodate some minority group and label them with some nonsensical "acceptable term."

Case in point:

"Also announced this week is that an old Victorian building nearby, vacant for years, will host a company called Coolato Gelato, run by entrepreneurs Allen and Cherryl Meuret, a not-quite-retired couple who moved to Knoxville from points north about five years ago."

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but ain't "couple who moved to Knoxville from points north" just some fancy euphemism for "Yankees?"
