Turns out that there is a simple preference to fix this problem. I have no idea why Apple doesn't make this the default setting.

While the Landmarks Preservation Board can sometimes go overboard (Alan Ginsburg once puked on that wall, so it's a historic landmark!), we are definitely blessed to have a strong preservation group to keep our wonderful architecture.
The first building granted landmark status in Berkeley (as well as our only designated National Landmark) is the Maybeck designed First Church of Christ, Scientist
One of my favorite buildings is the Julia Morgan Theater, formerly St. John's Presbyterian Church. This is still a functioning theater, and is one of many structures that may have been lost to history without the Landmark Preservation Board (in fact, the fight to save this beautiful building led to the formation of the Berkeley Architecture Heritage Association.

Okay, stop laughing, everybody knows that only chicks buy Miatas, right?
But they don't. According to JD Power, 58% of 2008 Miatas are purchased by men. There are hardly any less chicky chick cars. I bet the Studly Tahoe is bought far more often by soccer moms than by studly men.
And Allison, I know the gay jokes are coming. I expect to see them in comments!
