Minor Grammar/Usage Rant Number 2

I know, I know: language is fluid and I shouldn't be such a stickler; however, I just don't understand why some television commentators, for example, continue to use the word "concerning" as an adjective instead of choosing a correct adjective, such as "worrisome", "troublesome", "disturbing", "upsetting", or "disconcerting".

HA HA HA! Maybe those people are talking about literally standing ON TOP OF the taped/painted line on the floor, like at the post office, but I doubt it.
