Response to Atticus (Original post)

28. First job out of college worked at the local paper, per my editor if your readers need to look it up

Leave it out. Don't make your readers feel like they need to be a member of a special club to know what you are reporting. On the other hand, I'm much older now and don't keep up with all the acronyms so I do look them up, in an effort to stay in the loop. Yeah, it takes a little more time, don't do it for everything, but since I grew up I came to realize that I don't know everything. Whatever
