This doesn't work because the space in the character class means it matches the first single space in the line and returns that. You need to ensure that the match starts with an UPPER alpha, and then continues with UPPER alpha or space:
print $data =~ m/(\b[A-Z][A-Z ]+\b)/;;
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
