Why the current fixation with starting a sentence with "so" are these people really followers of a fashion?

I see and hear it everywhere on the tv, radio, bus, street.

The one that annoys me is the Australian 'Look!' at the start of a sentence which is like a teacher saying "pay attention...."


Out of my mind. Back soon!

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the use of "It's a big ask" to suggest that something is 'difficult to achieve'.

Where on Earth did that come from?

Mara Liasson reported from the Kerry campaign in Missouri. There are a few clips in the report from recent speeches by Kerry; here's the part from one of those clips that made me do a double-take:

I'm asking you to trust our nation, our history, the world, your families, in my hands. And I understand that it's a big ask. And it's a tough judgment you have to make.
