"As of now, the program is slated to continue till Dec. 1"
"The program is slated to continue till Dec. 1."
"As of now" crops up in my own speech and writing. But I never realized today how detestable it is, at least in journalistic writing. (It's like I'm having some kind of hate epiphany.) In journalism, where economy of words is a virtue, "as of now" is ridiculously obvious and adds nothing but a speed bump.
Hope I can learn from this one ...
