The Week, a national news magazine, conducts a weekly contest utilizing a specific item from a recent story. In the April 29 issue, Meghan Markle was highlighted for seeking a trademark for the word “archetypes.” Employing this trademark theme, contestants were asked to suggest which celebrity would attempt to trademark the next new word. Third place went to a gentleman from Florida who entered “Sen. Susan Collins: ‘Maybe.’”

It is always comforting to realize that citizens in faraway states recognize the role our senior senator plays on the national stage. As a concerned voter, I urge her to take this gentleman’s suggestion.
