Those Nagging Little Problems (Part 6 of 16)

A trend today, and I hear newscasters say this regularly, is as to. That’s an awkward expression and it’s better to say, about. Instead of “As to the situation in Central Park,” try, “About the situation in Central Park.”

A friend said, “I have no idea as to where I want to eat.” It would have been better if he had said, “I have no idea about where I want to eat.” (I would have eliminated about.)
