    Anyone notice the word uneffected in stories on tainted eggs? It seems like the same mistake isn't being noticed around the country.

    Most people are unaffected by such mistakes.

    I was just pointing this out to my wife yesterday. Some kind of bastardization of "unaffected" and "no ill effects." Regardless, you're right, it's bothersome.

    If we could all just get untracked, we could appreciate this new usage.
