I'm assuming FB wants to make correct edits to the Wikipedia article on the Bronx.

The Bronc(sp?) family used to own a huge tract of land (snerk) on top of the island of Manhattan.

If you went to their land, you said you were going to the Bronc's.

That's why it's called what it's called.

i thought it was bronx because bronx is the plural of bronck, not possessive. not that that would make it not -the- bronx.

Wikipedia is just laughable.
17th-Sep-2007 03:27 pm (UTC)
and it's your fault.
17th-Sep-2007 03:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm one of those annoying people who consults actual reference books/sites.
17th-Sep-2007 03:52 pm (UTC)
and most likely those books/sites end up being just as, or more, wrong than Wikipedia.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Information Literacy!
17th-Sep-2007 08:48 pm (UTC)
Information Literacy?
17th-Sep-2007 08:50 pm (UTC)
I rest my case. Sadly.
17th-Sep-2007 08:53 pm (UTC)
to me information literacy means not stringing two words together(information, and literacy) and expecting everyone to know what's going on inside your head.
17th-Sep-2007 09:03 pm (UTC)
The practice of finding, evaluating, and using information and its sources. If you want further info, I can happily provide.
17th-Sep-2007 10:12 pm (UTC)
and your point is..? lost? irrelevant?
17th-Sep-2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
...stemming from your comment as to the accuracy of any sources, obviously.
17th-Sep-2007 04:31 pm (UTC)
Wikipedia Brown, even more so.
17th-Sep-2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
I love it! :-)
17th-Sep-2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
Haha, there comes a time when repeating a word so many times makes it lose all meaning so it's just a funny arrangement of letters. After reading this post, the word Bronx is just making me laugh. Expecially the 'nx' part.

Lol, Bronx. Brooooonx.

is it just me, or can anyone else not answer this poll because it's gotta be "Da Bronx," not "The Bronx?"
17th-Sep-2007 05:50 pm (UTC)
I'm with you...Da Bronx is mo' proper. ;)
18th-Sep-2007 03:16 pm (UTC)
Oh man, why didn't I think of that? I knew there was some better answer that was missing!
17th-Sep-2007 05:41 pm (UTC)
I can't answer. There's no "Da Bronx" listed as an answer. :)

What's the old addage, I owe you a beer or something? :)
17th-Sep-2007 07:20 pm (UTC)
You owe her a coke...but i guess we could up the ante to beer these days. ;)
17th-Sep-2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
i couldn't decide. i know it's 'the bronx'. but i just don't know what the article should be titled.
17th-Sep-2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
FWIW, I work in a law office, and on all of our filings, it's referred to as "The Bronx."
18th-Sep-2007 11:05 am (UTC)
The evidence is mounting!
