    *Must resist urge to make bad GI Joe reference* For the record, I did not know that. And in spite of the fact I just read that fact, I'll forget about it.

        Maybe its just the hour (its rather late here), but are you trying to obliquely say that naming a child "Paterno"/"Ratzinger" dooms them to get dragged into a pedophilia scandal?



        Historical Note: Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict) had a role in the pedophile priest scandal of a couple years ago

          I think you've caught the gist of my satirical bon mot.

          It's worth noting that my original post may in fact have had no accurate linguistic value whatsoever.
