Comments: Ohio Man Wanted For Arson, Law-Making

I am SO glad you posted the () portion :D...I read the "ordinance" section 3 times before my brain forced my eyes lower.

Years back I worked for a DC based beltway bandit. While we were working on a project for AF Special Operations Command related to munitions and weapons systems, we had a (DC based naturally) tech editor who insisted on changing every occurrence of "ordnance" to "ordinance" no matter how many times we explained this to her. Since that company didn't allow mere techies to contaminate the output of the highly paid tech editors with our grubby paws, that was the way our documents frequently went to AFSOC. How embarrassing.
