Renamed George Mason University Law School Is Probably Not For Assxxxxs

The late U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia
might have reacted like this to the quickly
abandoned acronym for the George Mason
University law school named after him A 
George Mason University had what seemed like a great idea.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February, and George Mason decided to honor him by creating the Antonin Scalia School of Law.  

Sounds wonderful until you see the new law's school's acronym: ASSoL.

Probably not the intended message here.

According to Slate and a host of other publications, George Mason University is rethinking the law school name.

They still want to honor Scalia, but maybe in a different workding concept. We're noticing on its website, they're calling it the "Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.

That would leave us with the acronym ACLS.

A little better, but maybe a touch too close to ACLU for the late conservative justice's taste.

We'll see.
