    Neil W. McCabe is the most annoying writer ever

    McCabe is one of the main news writers for Human Events. He really annoys me when he insists on writing out the full names of people.

    Take this article for example: http://www.humanevents.com/2014/02/0...ouse-hopefuls/

    Former Bay State senator Scott P. Brown leads former New Hampshire senator Robert C. Smith in the conservative 54 to 22 percent, according to a Jan. 29-30 Human Events/Gravis poll of 498 registered Granite State voters.

    Asked for a preference among possible 2016 GOP presidential candidates, 16 percent chose former Florida governor John E. “Jeb” Bush, followed by 15 percent for New Jersey Gov. Christopher J. Christie with 12 percent for senators Randall H.” Rand” Paul from Kentucky and R. Edward “Ted” Cruz from Texas, said Doug Kaplan, the president Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based polling firm that conducted the survey.
    Memo to McCabe: It is ok to call people what they want to be called.

    I see what you mean.

    If he's gonna do stuff like that, he should at least "go all the way" and tell us what their middle names are - not just their middle initials ...

    And why isn't it "Christopher J. 'Chris' Christie" ... ?
    And why is it "R. Edward 'Ted' Cruz" and not "Rafael E. 'Ted' Cruz" ... ?
    And what the hell is Doug Kaplan's middle initial ... ?

    Good points.

    As I kept reading I caught this one too: "W. William “Bill” Hutwelker"
