What about "Evacugee"?

On the Media had a great segment this weekend about the "refugee" vs. "evacuee" debate that's been raging within news organizations. NPR itself (along with most media outlets) made the switch to using the term evacuee last week. For those looking to sound off, Eric Zorn has been posting on this debate over at Change of Subject. I'm not convinced the switch was necessary, but OTM did their usual good work, and you can listen to the segment online or as a podcast.

More public radio news: This American Life featured a number of Katrina related stories this week (via Cosmic Variance). No free podcast, but you can stream it.
