Herman

Herman Cain...well, it would be nice to see a return of the name "Herman" to general use.

Several years ago, I received a CD produced by a local middle school. The entire school sang on it. They wrote the songs themselves, about the importance of good nutrition---I can't remember what else. Something about the principal. An anti-racist song.

The name of each student was listed in the liner notes. I looked through the list. There were dozens and dozens of girls name Jacqueline, spelled various ways. It seemed like every fifth boy was named either Zack, Zac, Zach, or Zachary.

There wasn't a single boy with a regular name. Not a single one named John, Paul, Peter, Roy, Phil, Steve.
