Starts with an 's' ...

Hey, kids! What's that word for when, you know, you call all the girls by their first name and all the boys by their last name?

Should someone say "Well, that's what everybody calls her," either of two responses would be appropriate:

1) So what?
2) Could I see the survey results that support your claim, please?

Even in the age of the Intarwebz, readers expect standards. They can't tell what you're thinking, but they have a really clear idea of what you say.


And while you're at it -- downstyle: Not just for breakfast anymore.

I suppose in this context "Clinton" would work, but often it would just be confusing. (And there are plenty of Rudy headlines, no?)

With the attention to "style," why is "run" uppercased in the Hillary line, while the "Ryan, Rubio" portion. is all downstyle? Could it be that no one is really paying any attention to anything? Inquiring minds and all that
