Sic, sic, sick

The mayor of Palacios, quoted in the Friday Vicad in a story about nuke plants, scored the coveted Double Doofus award for mistreating the language twice over in a short sentence or two. He was quoted as saying, “They have not made a mistake since they were incepted. I put my decedents’ futures in their hands.” So, one for the gnarly neologism 'incepted,' a real cringer, and another for 'decedents' when he meant -- I hope -- 'descendants.'
