The Price of Freedom
I was rocking the baby to sleep last night, all the while chatting to the dog, when the truth was suddenly revealed to me. Dirac is, of course, an anglicization of D'Iraq, French for "of Iraq", or Iraqi. The dog is saddled with a name both French and Iraqi, a weight that must be too much to bear. Unfortunately he's not very bright, so I don't think that he'll be able to adjust to a name change. He also shows a certain fondness for strongly dictatorial organizations. So in the name of patriotism, I think I'll have to have him put down. Or maybe that would be overreacting?
