Wow!... That looks like a must read kind of book. I love those kinds of facts!... Thanks!

Reading the phrase "white boy" seems funny. Maybe while male is more politically correct.

But then I remember I hate PC-ness...

Good facts.

I'll tell you, they ought to have statistics for who picked the name - mommy, daddy, or both. Because names I'd picked for my boys were summarily vetoed by my husband for reasons only comprehended by man-logic.
