SLUT makes maiden run in Seattle

Anacronyms, they’re everywhere, we use them every chance we get to shorten up a long title, but one has to wonder if that’s always a good thing.  Back in August of this year, we ran a little blurb [linked below] about a TV station in Hawaii that was assigned the call letters KUNT by the FCC.  Now the city of Seattle has more or less followed suit.  They’ve just launched a new urban transportation system called the South Lake Union Trolley, or SLUT for short.  Are our government officials starting to do these things on purpose, or are they really that clueless?

Ok… everybody with your hand up, put it back down… we all know the answer to that one.
