Thanks for raising 'Democrat' vs. 'Democratic'. I appreciate your pointing out the wikipedia article.

As you might guess, I am among those that were not aware the term has a pejorative meaning for some. I worked for many years with Democrats and used the term regularly. Nobody ever raised it with me. That having been said, I will be sure to use "Democratic" prospectively.
