Glenn Greenwald's middle initial is "E." Can we agree on an acceptable abbreviation?

There seems to be some controvery over what to call Mr. Greenwald. So I went and found his middle initial.

Let me know your thoughts, below.

1. SJ for the super-journalist he imagines himself to be.

 



It's a fireworks display, he says, and he's saving the best for last! Go, go Super-J!

8. You're really having problems with initials these days, Whisp.

 

It might be a disorder you'll want to get checked.

4. Or 'RJ' for Robotic Journalist.

 

Since he says his job is relatively straightforward to publish whatever someone steals and hands off to him.

No self-reflection needed. You know, like a robot.

5. I went with the first choice.

everybody should have to spell it out. I don't give a shit how much of a pain in the ass it is to do so with your phone. and I care even less that initials and abbreviations are used for everything and everyone else under the sun. this is el bebe jesus pequeno for crying out loud.

Personally, I see it as using homophobia as a weapon and devaluing the nature of homophobia.

Though it sounds like the name of a cave man, and so that might be homophobic, too.

Not that I have anything against dumb jokes.


But really, shouldn't this thread be about twerking?
