  • Stylebook conservatism

    As you may have read, the Associated Press decided this week that its writers are permitted to use husband and wife for same-sex couples, in those jurisdictions where same-sex marriage is legal. Should you not have read about it, I commend to your...
  • Hey, AP Stylebook users, they're just guidelines

    A comment on Facebook responding to one of my posts recommending revisions in the Associated Press Stylebook raises a couple of issues worth examining:  Here's what bugs me: the idea that a style guide should, or is claiming to, apply universally. That'...
  • Teel Time: With No. 2 Oregon on deck, reviewing U.Va.'s top non-conference wins

    Virginia has gone undefeated in non-conference play only once in the last 15 football seasons, in 2005, and with No. 2 Oregon visiting Scott Stadium on Saturday, that trend figures to continue. The Cavaliers upset No. 2 Florida State at home in 1995,...

    In what may be the greatest victory to date for the sophisticatedly asinine organization "No Labels," the Associated Press has embraced a new policy against "labeling people." For instance, its widely used and influential style guide is being purged of...

    Obama administration assaults press freedom
    In Washington, as in any seat of power, most acts of folly begin with hubris. Government leaders, elected or appointed, usually don't intend to do the wrong thing, to overstep or cause harm, but they become so convinced, so certain of their purpose,...
  • AP case fuels complaints on Obama whistle-blower policies

    The Justice Department's secret review of Associated Press telephone records gives advocates for federal employees one more reason to doubt the Obama administration's full commitment to protecting whistleblowers, particularly those in national security...
  • Days of our guiding light

    The 2013 edition of the Associated Press Stylebook arrived in the mail yesterday, the sixtieth consecutive annual publication of the stylebook, and frankly, I am at a loss to understand its appeal.  The AP Stylebook has outlasted the daytime serial...

    No Contest: UConn Dominates Gannon In Exhibition, 101-35
    — This first night of the UConn women's basketball season Friday differed greatly from First Night, the extended pep rally preceding it two weeks ago. This was about business. For the defending national champion, the business at hand was...
  • All right, I was snarky, but ...

    Yesterday I was reproached, discreetly and privately, for my tone in the post inquiring after the dumbest AP style rule. So let me say, directly and publicly, that I have met David Minthorn, Darrell Christian, and Colleen Newvine on their visits to...
