New Name

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front needs one. Here's the headline as it appeared in Gmail:

Kidnapped Irish priest released by MILF

And here's the lede:

Irish priest Father Michael Sinnott, who had been kidnapped by militants in the Philippines, was released Wednesday night to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)

Also too, I think The CS Monitor needs to pay closer attention to pop colloquialisms.
