LINING UP against LIGHTFOOT — LINCOLN YARDS curve ball — J.B. and LORI meet for dinner – POLITICO

Mayor Lori urges something she does not want:

She called for “a transparent and fulsome subject matter hearing to address questions including consequences for other TIF districts, affordable housing options, plans for minority- and women-owned businesses, and impacts on diversity, population density, schools, traffic, and other factors.”

Do see the problem? If not, look up fulsome:

offensive to good taste, especially as being excessive; overdone or gross: fulsome praise that embarrassed her deeply; fulsome décor.

disgusting; sickening; repulsive: a table heaped with fulsome mounds of greasy foods.

excessively or insincerely lavish: fulsome admiration.

(Unless she means “abundant or copious,” #5 of 5 approved usages.)

RELATED WORDS are no help:

bombastic, buttery, canting, cloying, coarse, extravagant, fawning, flattering, glib, grandiloquent, hypocritical, immoderate, ingratiating, inordinate, insincere, magniloquent, mealy-mouthed, nauseating, offensive, oily

Please. No more of such talk. We have come to expect more from the pride of Massilon.
