: hi, it's me, the san francisco chronicle book critic again. i'm ginning up a little something on political/management rhetoric, and i'd love to see possible derivations of either "best practices," employed to mean "the most efficient techniques used by the competition," or "moving forward," employed to mean, well, as little as possible, as in "we're coming together in proactive way to start moving forward on..."

Oh man do I hate that corporate crapola jingoism stuff like "in a proactive way" and "moving forward" and the best/worst one: "on a go forward basis".
Back into my hole I go.
