Dawn: Not every grouping of birds is called a flock. A group of crows is called a murder, so your reference to a “terror of editors” seems very apropos.
DFO: Dawn is referring to the question I tossed out yesterday re: the SR’s new made-for-video newsroom huddle webcasts. Since computer viewers now can tune in and see our editors pawing over prospective stories for tomorrow’s paper (at 10 and 4:30 weekdaily), I wondered what you’d call the grouping. A pride (as in lions)? A gaggle (as in geese)? My suggestion: a terror. Then, a gasbag might work, too. Anyone else have suggestions?
