    Yes, it can, but people uncomfortable with the Queen of England’s hat might not like it. – tchrist Sep 6 '15 at 2:10

I suppose you can, but I have never seen such usage. To avoid the issue you could write:

I was reading article headlines from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, et cetera (etc.).
