Coined the Term

Cliché o' the Day: "... coined the term ..." — what a slender reed on which to base a claim of fame! Just because somebody is first to say a phrase that catches on doesn't mean they are a deep thinker, or that somebody else didn't do the hard work. The same end-state might have been reached entirely without their slogan. Beware celebrity promo, especially by wordsmith biographers.
