OMG! Badger State tourism up

Last month I ragged on South Carolina. Today it’s Wisconsin’s turn. Lots of free advertising boosted the Badger State’s tourism industry last year. Apparently, the abbreviation of Wisconsin state’s tourism group had been interjected into lots of text messages. So why are they changing their name?

Speaking of ragging, shouldn’t abbreviations be gender-tested, especially when begotten from IT? Some years ago I had to break it to an engineer that his acronym for a Product Management System was already taken. Yup, the PMS.
