Submission + - Language murder 2

eigenstates writes: Ok Slashdots, I need some help here. I am trying to track down the point that brought 'going forward' or 'moving forward' in to the modern lexicon as acceptable terminology. The first recollection I have of it is about 2000/1 in some random speech by Bill Clinton. After that it became a staple of any corporate meeting. Then when I left the corporate world for saner pastures it started popping up there as well. Now completely senseless and back in the corporate world- it's still here. I believe the only way to stop it is to find out its origin. so help me Slashdot, you're my only hope.
