Names

Do people spell better in harder-to-spell cities like Schenectady? Or (admittedly not as hard) Poughkeepsie? From the start, they have to spell their town's name a little more carefully; maybe it leads to more people spelling everything else more carefully.

And do all long-named cities get some shorter nickname? Like Charlottesville, VA being called C'ville?

These thoughts are brought to you by my paying bills.

Meanwhile, good morning. Make it a good week. For those of you who don't read this journal over the weekend, I'd like to re-share what I wrote about getting to see Beetlejuice Friday night.
