Mr. Rewrite would rather not have to post on this


The Penn State news of the past 24 hours can't be dealt with lightly. But Mr. Rewrite should note, while acknowledging the gravity of the news being conveyed, that the AP Stylebook calls for cover-up, not coverup, as a noun and adjective and cover up as a verb. So the Freeh report alleges that certain officials engaged in a cover-up, at least if a news organization bound by AP style is reporting it.
