Praise and Style question

Professor Jensen! I love this article! So sharp and concise! I read all about Carnegie when I was in the process of envisioning Howard Hughes as a new type of 20th century tycoon. But may I ask you something? Is there any sort of consensus on Citizendium about some things? Is it 1850's or 1850s? Is it "Pa" for Pennsylvania or "PA"? In the Kennedy page, I originally had "Ma" for example, but changed it to "MA". Are to use "--" or " - "? Is there a consensus? Sorry to bother you with this.Jeffrey Scott Bernstein 22:12, 8 October 2007 (CDT)

Thanks for the comments! I just finished the Nasaw book and have long admired Carnegie. It's 1850s (no apostrophe). As for state abbreviations, I dislike the postal codes and can never get Michigan-Missouri-Mississippi-Montana, etc. straight! I always rely on Chicago Manual of Style for these points... It's the best style manual going, but CZ has not officially adopted any. Richard Jensen 00:52, 9 October 2007 (CDT)

A more "perfect pose" lede image is possible here, but I felt this one was filled with realism, and thus seemed to make the man more human. Comments welcome. Stephen Ewen 02:30, 20 December 2007 (CST)
