Where is Buffy?

Stakeholders?  Why does this phrase annoy me so?  In this piece, there is a report of a general meeting with stakeholders?  Is it shorthand for people who care?  Or for people we are about who might care?  I guess it sounds better than relevant elites, but it just does not sing to me.  All I can think of when I hear this phrase are either vampires who need some staking or putting up some tents.

Any business-speak of the late 20th century annoy you as much as stakeholders annoys me?

Not related to this post, but still, a question based on today's news:

How fair would you find a comparison between today's coordinated attacks in Kabul and the Tet offensive?
