The early days of modern US abortion debate consisted of the two sides coming up with names for themselves and for each other, until it mostly settled down to "pro-life" vs "pro-choice".

Similarly, the initial skirmishes between the people like me and the people named in _The Future and It's Enemies_, just now getting underway, are about what we will call ourselves and each other.

But I just saw today, associated with another current political battle that is well underway between the pro and anti GM foods people, is the pro side has come up with a new name for their product, to counter the ignorant "frankenfood" scare word.

"Designer Food".

Brilliant!
