Eh, the terms "burglary" and "break-in" have traditionally been used when unoccupied residences has been entered for the purpose of theft - for a long, long time. Now I see repeated use of the term "home invasion" for that same kind of event. When - "invasion" is used most often to describe intrusion into OCCUPIED TERRITORY. So why is this THIRD LESS APPROPRIATE TERM needed to describe burglaries / break-ins?? What's next: "Fatherland Security??" Will tourist trips to other countries be called " other country invasions? Will manned space flights be called "space invasions?" On the other hand, if you guys are just setting up as the latest renegade quasi-news source, you're doing a great job. :-)
