Acronyms. We live in a world filled with acronyms. Acronyms are an easy way to shorten a long title into a short and easily recognizable line of letters. Rather than writing out Internal Revenue Service we use an acronym ? IRS. Tell me what adult person in the USA ? United States of America ? does not automatically recognize that acronym. K.I.S.S., an acronym that has been used in an attempt to remind people to keep things simple, also indicates that a person that fails to do so is somehow less than intelligent. I prefer to drop the derogatory last letter [stupid] and simply use the acronym K.I.S. ? Keep It Simple.
