Wolfrum’s Morning – The name game
November 30, 2012 by William K. Wolfrum
I’ve been thinking about the parents that named their child “Hashtag,” recently. It led me to an idea that very well could change the plight of humankind – give your children wildly embarrassing names. It could save the world.
You see, in a world where “Hashtag” is talking to “Melba Toast” who is talking to “Call of Duty 2,” no one feels superior to one another. A humility will fall over the lands and peace will prevail.
Someone needs to study this.
Political journalist Ron Fournier gives an unflinching and honest account of his child with Asperger’s, as well as his own performance as a father to a child with special needs. It’s a beautiful and brave piece of work.
Face it, there are a lot of countries that wish their President and his recently defeated foe could get together for a cordial lunch. That said, I’m pretty sure Obama had them serve chili because Mormons aren’t allowed to fart. I think.
In less than three years, Lebron James has gone from the most hated and envied man in basketball to a world champion who can play diplomat. James and teammate Dwayne Wade showed class as they stood up for San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich.
At the tail end of a long road trip, Popovich decided to send aging stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli home before playing the Miami Heat. This caused an immature and transparent temper tantrum from NBA commissioner David Stern, due to the fact it was a nationally televised game. James and Wade did the right thing by standing with Popovich, and continued to prove themselves spokesmen for the game.
