I had a customer the other day say H-Vac instead of H-V-A-C. What a moron! Those of us in the industry know that it's right to say each individual letter in the word, and it makes a difference. If I was an H-Vac guy, I'd be selling vacuum cleaners, but I'm installing heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning, not hepa vacuums, so people just have to recognize what I am doing and why it makes sense to use my real title. It would be like if you called your doctor Doc. No doctor wants to be a doc, unless he's in a MASH unit or something. It makes him seem like he's a computer document rather than a fully-trained doctor.

Or, maybe you want to call your president Pres or your mayor May. Pres Obama or May Barrett. That's dumb. Do you say you have an It department at work, or is it I-T? It's I-T, folks. Leave the acronym-as-words for Europeans and Socialists, like NATO or NAFTA or INFORSE.

American Dreaming With Dan Brubus Capitalism always wins. Pure and simple. America developed the F-14 Tomcat over many years. It was used to keep the world safe, but now it’s time to sell the leftovers to the highest bidder. Yes, the highest bidder does happen to be on my short list of countries I’d like to see blown up by next year, but we can benefit from their desire to bolster their military before we crush them. We should sell F-14 Tomcats to Iran because we have the greatest military on earth and our treasury could use the cash to help fund the war on terror.

A man was seen riding a BMX bicycle early July 31. When an officer told him to stop, the man dropped the bike and ran. The bike was not reported as stolen.
