"North" America: another pet peeve entry...

A common lazy writing technique, similar in spirit to "only a fraction", is adding "North" to America when someone wants to make a point about the US. This allows the person to sound "international" or "politically correct". But last I checked, Mexico is in North America as well, but their point is rarely something applicable to Mexico.

Entries in the Pet Peeve File:

Expressions I don't like
The Number 23
