To the Editor:

I am seeing more frequent use of “So Bu” as the shorthand designation for my city. I’m not crazy about this adopted nickname but it got me thinking about extending it throughout the region. If it’s good enough for So Bu, let’s give other communities a chance to be creative along with us. How about:

Bu

Willis

Hines

Colch

Es Junc

Milt

Rich

Jeri

Hunti

If Mont, Rut, Bratt and Benn want to join us too, let’s go statewide!

If half a word is enough, why waste time with the full version?
