I wonder how it'll end

The Philadelphia Inquirer style committee will soon revisit the
newspaper's style on the use of the word like to mean such as and
including.

In most instances, our newspaper's style dictates we write -- Some
people enjoy big cars, such as Cadillacs. Not: Some people enjoy big
cars like Cadillacs.


There may be fist-fights over this one.
