Well, Archbishop Bob, nowhere on the masthead/front-page of your very fine
newspaper do the words "Fort Lauderdale" appear--however, the words "South
Florida" ARE there, in caps and what looks like 24-point type. On page 1A the
"Reader's Guide" gives a Ft. Lauderdale address as the business location for
the paper--but then NEWSWEEK gives a Washington, DC, business location, but
that doesn't make it "The Washington, DC, NEWSWEEK"! Cf. USA TODAY, the Wall
Street Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, etc.
I've only been here for three weeks (and I have to go back to North Carolina
on 1 March)--as I newcomer, I went by what I read in the newspaper. If y'all
want me to call you the "Fort Lauderdale" Sun-Sentinel and not the "South
Florida" Sun-Sentinel, then I respectfully suggest that you call YOURSELVES
the "Fort Lauderdale" Sun-Sentinel and not the "South Florida" Sun-Sentinel
SOMEWHERE in the newspaper itself (especially on the masthead)!
