Today's rant: colors that aren't colors, scents that aren't scents. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about distinctive labels (maroon v. dark red) and alliterative names (seafoam v. turquoise) and I understand that marketing is important, but I'm sorry: "Every Man in Portugal" is not a color. Nor is "melody" a legitimate air freshener scent. Imagine the chaos if this continues! Picture this on your 2006 SAT: "Is 'capri' a) a light blue tint, b) a tropical aroma, c) a pair of amputated shorts, or d) an island near Naples, Italy?"
