There are a number of acronyms in existence that have been used in the English language for hundreds of years, and all have been abbreviated for a good reason, because they were in another language to begin with. However the acronyms of today differ entirely. They have been created purely for convenience, and they do nothing but promote laziness in written and sometimes spoken English.

Susan Boyle is an alternative thinker and has been diagnosed as having an Autistic Spectrum Condition. No real shock for those of us who live and breathe ASC. So to you Susan, I write this letter...
