Let's Hear It For 7...


It was a slow math weekend, so here's all I got for you:

Having a child anytime soon... have you considered the name "Seven"?  Mona Chalabi reports finding 1584 people in the U.S. with that very appellation, more than any other integer between 1 and 20:

As you may recall, in a survey less than 2 years ago, "Seven" was also found to be the world's "favorite number." Soooo, it's a beautiful name.

...as George Costanza was thrilled to inform you:



And if you don't want to name your kid in honor of Mickey Mantle, well, fine, name him/her "Yogi" instead.
