That word still does not mean what you think it means...

I believe I've already ranted before on the abuse of the word "literally" these days. People, please, learn your own language!

Today though was an almost amusing (though still annoying) one... watching the semi-local news, there's apparently some child molester that's done something and the city police (of Baltimore I believe) were searching for him desperately, prompting the reporter-on-the-spot to mention that the police were "literally combing the city" for the guy.

Anyone else getting severe flashbacks to Spaceballs?
