That was it!  Thanks a lot!

I was also trying to output the acronym in caps so I was entering 
string.upper (acronym) like whats in the book and kept getting a 
"'tuple' object is not callable" error message.  Just for the heck of it 
I tried it acronym.upper() and it worked!  I thought it could work both 
ways?
