Yea, but saying someone was dull was a way of saying they weren't sharp, which isn't necessarily derogatory either; sharpness or dullness in intelligence could be spoken of objectively. The newer terms have the benefit of being more polite and optimistic sounding.

For now, anyway. :laugh:

I hope those lunatics in Washington can come up with a workable plan to reduce the deficit.
