Do they think we're that dumb?

Southern Comfort is now So Co? Says who?

Headline News is not HLN? Why?

National Geographic is now Nat Geo. Et tu, National Geographic?

Some ad guys somewhere decided that abbreviating the names of these iconic symbols of American life would make them more hip and cool. The sad part is that it probably worked.

It may be a tad generous to call Headline news an iconic symbol of American life. I can't quibble with using that term for the other two.
