    Hi, Tom. Thanks for following up. I believe that at the time I was editing it, we were still within the 24-hour mark.

    No worries, Tom. For what it's worth, I just had to add "www." in each URL. Keep up the good work.

    Yeah you're completely correct Tom, sorry. I've just started the job and am still getting to grips with the standards! Thanks for that and my sincerest apologies.

    Will Tom Urtz Jr. ask a question in his title that he doesn't answer rhetorically?

    Sure thing, Tom. Where age constructions are concerned, only post-noun adjective phrases ("23 years old") are not hyphenated. Nouns ("the 23-year-old") and pre-noun adjective phrases ("the 23-year-old blueliner") are hyphenated.

    You suck. Out loud. My cat can write better than you, you incredible hack. If I had written the ridiculous drivel you pass off as journalism when I was in grade school, my teacher would have covered it in red ink and thrown it back at me with orders to rewrite it. Please quit. Now.

    Your journalism is pathetic. You come up with ranking systems by tossing a coin in the air?
    When you call cities "bandwagoners"…especially one like Chicago, you better be prepared to know wtf you're talking about. In your case,…..NOT EVEN CLOSE. It's disgusting your approach to writing. I'd have fired you for your pathetic writing and your approach to your work. But that's me. I expect more from writers than donut eaters "just trying to get by" sitting behind their cubical playing "Mine Craft" talking crud to 8-9 year olds.
    You make editorial comments you BETTER EXPECT a retort. Bandwagoners! Pthth! You're crap!
