The Brooklyn Accent Free

Born two years after Charlie Brown's debut; mainframe geek for three decades for a great metropolitan bank, now semi-retired and keeping busy as a spelling and grammar geek for an investment company (with a couple of side gigs). I've identified with Charlie Brown as a kid, Mike Doonesbury in college, Dilbert at work, and Opus in my free time.

    It took me several minutes to figure out what MC stood for. Is the problem that (a) I’m staggeringly stupid, (b) it’s not an obvious initialism to people who haven’t been teachers, © I’m showing signs of senility, (d) it’s early in the morning and I haven’t ingested any caffeine yet, or (e) all of the above?
