    I'm having a mental block and don't have my AP Stylebook handy. Can someone tell me which it is?

    This. The AP has made so many simple, but important, changes over the last two years, it has been somewhat hard to remember once you're programmed to do one thing.

    I remember when the AP was going to get rid of state abbreviations and just spell it out. You know copy editors and designers will likely vomit if that ever does happen. Heck, I don't want to relearn how to spell!

    I vote for the two-letter postal abbreviations.

    But then so many people out there would probably think Lincoln, NE means Lincoln, New England.

    Sorry, I watch too many game shows at night that make me realize how dumb people can be.

    I've thought they should have changed it a long time ago.
