Lost in the shuffle of last week's Traitorgate indictments was a great little bit o' new style, courtesy of the Springfield News-Leader.

The changing of the name from Southwest Missouri State University to Missouri State University has created a style issue for the Gannett-owned daily. The acronym "MSU" is used in headlines -- but last Thursday, a local-front brief revealed a new name for the school:
M State University fans plan to show school spirit with a bonfire tonight on the campus, the first attempt at such a celebration since sometime in the 1990s, said Fred Marty, assistant vice president for administrative services.
Maybe the school should go all out and adopt Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King" as a theme song. It worked just fine for Peter Lorre.
