AP Stylebook update

AP has changed its entry on United Nations. No longer do you need to spell out U.N. as a noun. (Feel that load lifting from your shoulders?)

The entry now begins:
United Nations Abbrev: U.N. (no space). The periods in U.N., for consistency with U.S., are an exception to the first listing in Webster's New World Dictionary.
Could U.S. be next?
