  • Something annoying me...

    Do we HAVE to abbreviate EVERYTHING? These websites that have turned New Orleans, La. into NOLA...that's annoying as hell. I mean, come on...is it that much harder to type "New Orleans" than it is "NOLA"? Do we have to be trendy ALL the time?

    Do you type or write STL and not think about it? I do it all the time. What about LA, NYC, or better yet do you write out District of Columbia instead of just DC.

      But those are common acronyms that have been in use for some time. Even NO isn't that bad because, when in the context of the story, it makes sense, but New Orleans doesn't need LA as a qualifier...EVERYONE knows New Orleans is in Louisiana...except maybe Chops...we'll throw him that question this week. Anyway, it's just annoying that everything has to be abbreviated, like J-Lo, or J-Rod, or A-Rod, etc...

            You are just upset about the cartel thing.
            Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.
