De Do Do Do De Da Da DA


Yes, the AP says the abbreviation for district attorney is DA, but it looks absurd in this all-caps headline. Maybe this is the time to break from AP and put in the periods, especially when the abbreviation is used as an adjective.

(With apologies to Sting.)

    In Anderson County Tennessee there were many roadside signs reading

    HUNT FOR DA

    My father's haircutter's sister's boyfriend couldn't figure out what 'da' was and why one should hunt it.
