My man!

Add "Ohio" to the list of states you should be really careful about abbreviating in heds. (Photo just in from Strayhorn.)

That Mi. is confusing, too. Where's he from?

Michigan. To top it off, I spotted this yesterday and waited 12 hours before getting a screen grab. So despite plenty of time and a few snarky comments on the site, no one bothered to edit it.

Ohio shouldn't need to be abbreviated in a headline anyway.

I'm puzzled as to why a TV station would have to abbreviate words on a Web page in the first place. What were the specs for that head? If you have a character count for an online head, there's something wrong with the design.
