Yes, I agree that your usage is the conventional and proper one in an international context.

Greendruid is just being anal and pedantic, as is his nature.

Besides, Greendruid's hometown takes lots of abuse up here (kinda like Cleveland I might add!) so he's just jumping on the opportunity to blow the old hometown horn there.

When I sort out my linux issues and my video is working again, I'll see if I can find the fake Cleveland promo ads that are hilarious.

Actually, I think Cleveland's biggest problem is that Clevelanders have a habit of buying into the poor image and shitting all over our city. How is anybody else going to think it's great if the people who live in and around it trash it?

I like Cleveland.

It's a good read by Tim Green, former defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons and color analyst for Fox Broadcasting. He is a graduate of Syracuse University Law School and lives in upstate New York.

Glazer's. I mispelled the name of the family who own the Tampa Bay Bucs. Like I give a shit, anyway. Worthless people.
