This reader pointed out:
"The name needs to be bold and something to be proud of; not a name that will bring constant embarrassment and ridicule: Diddlers High - a bunch of blooming molesters? Giga High - really? Think it through folks - it's bad enough many of you gave your kids' names nobody can spell or pronounce. "
I have been duly chastised, as have the majority of my readers who have misnamed their children.
Of course, it was well before I received this letter that I began to regret my decisions to name my son Aierelowopid and my daughter LaShwianianiqjikilaga. I also regret my former ignorance of the fact that Bo Diddley was a notorious child molester.
Of course, to give your organization a name with a too-close sonic proximity to any other word is to tempt fate. My time in Granada Hills High School's Thespian Society taught me that.
So in the interest of seeking a bold and proud alternative, I offer:
It's presidential. It's historic. It's bold. It's proud. It has the potential to gain widespread support. And Bush High is a name that would be tough to make fun of. I can't think of any jokes to connect with that. Can you?
Spread the word throughout the community: the school formerly known as Bo Diddley High will from this point forward be known as George W. Bush High School.
