The Apotheosis of Suburbia

This evening, while coming out of the Wal*Mart parking lot -- yes, I know -- I was behind a minivan of a soccer mom. I knew she was a soccer mom because she had decals on the back of the van, two of soccer balls and one of a cheerleader. Those decals also had the names of her children.

And those children are Caitlyn, Tyler, and Madison.

Why then, this is hell, nor am I out of it.

If you combine both Madison and Maddison together, it becomes the 7th most popular name in the Australian state of Victoria since 2000.

Nick: I know that there are people who spell Madison with two D's, but I choose to ignore their existence. I'm afraid there is no help for them in this world at all.

I hate those creepy car stickers so much!

When will we finally start hearing about children named Taft and Harding?

(Word verification: "slytor". Seems a shame for that to come up on a non-SFnal post.)
