Something I learned from the full-page ad for the movie Orphan in today's Times and the questions it raises
"Horror has a new name, and it's Esther."
I wonder how Horror came to pick this new name. Was Horror trying to sound like someone's 80-year-old aunt?
I also wonder how inconvenient the process was. Did Horror have to go to the DVM and get a new license? How about her Social Security card? Credit cards? What about Horror's birth certificate? If Horror ... er, if Esther runs for elected office, will bloggers claim she isn't eligible and where the hell is the vault copy of her birth certificate?
Frankly, this sounds like a pain in the neck, and, in sum, I wonder if Esther has really thought this through.
