What’s In a Name?

Comment of the Week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “Debby,” who mourned, upon reading Stephanie Butnick’s report that a rival candidate had published a tasteless attack on Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, “UGH! Amen, Stephanie! I was traumatized by Debbie Does Dallas references all through elementary school, presumably by a population of people who had not seen the movie. Why the staying power of this stupid 1970s porno? I would prefer Debbie Downer any day.”

Debby gets a copy of Douglas Century’s Barney Ross as a substitute for the boxing lessons she should have taken in elementary school.
