Aren't acronyms fun! <G> I grew up in the South, where UDC means United
Daughters of the Confederacy. Imagine my surprise one morning a few
years back when on the front page of the Washington (DC) POST was a
picture of black male under the headline: UDC names New President.
I still have trouble recalling that the University of the District of
Columbia (UDC) isn't the UDC...so to speak.
There's another meaning to IBM, as well, but I never remember it. CSC is
either Computer Sciences Corp or Concrete Services Corp (for cement); and
NCR is either National Cash Register or something else I don't remember.
Used to be language facilitated communication not obscured it ...
