Suppose I have a phrase, like “measure-preserving transformation” which I abbreviate by “MPT.” Would I then say “T is a MPT” or “T is an MPT?” My gut instinct is that I would write the former and speak the latter, but that’s inconsistent. It’s probably the latter, since it’s “em pee tee,” right?
I parked my bike near the library this morning, masking my inability to make it up the hill by my need to return some books. As I walked across the brick and concrete landing to the main entrance, I passed two students on a bench commenting on a blind man making his way by fits and starts to the door. “Oops, there he goes,” giggled one. “He’ll make it in ok,” commented the other.
For those who use MoveableType, Aarson Shafovaloff has a way to make it so that extended entries open up in the same page rather than the archive page. It’s oh-so-neato. And the function name is “ChristIsImmanentInAllThings(youBet, justInCase).” Oh so funny.
