 Airplanes used to stop at the gate. Now they make a complete stop at the gate area. From which you proceed to the baggage claim area and on to the New York, or Dallas, or San Francisco area. It is a cloudy word that has blanketed, and hence obliterated, the differences between neighborhood, district, part of town, region, state, topic, theme.   -  Alistair Cooke
