Bogollagama v. Butts. Two names enter, one name leaves.


Name of the Day: White House deputy counsel Cassandra Q. Butts.

It’s the Q that really makes it work, really ties the whole name together.

No, I don’t know what it stands for.

Pakistan has sprung into action in response to the terrorist attack on Sri Lanka’s cricket team, creating a task force to figure out how to blame India. It also offered a reward of $125,000, which some would say is rather low for an attack which wounded 6 team members, killed 6 cops and 1 (or 2) civilians, damaged the reputation of Pakistan and threatened to make something about cricket interesting. But it’s nice to know that the US dollar is still the currency of choice for bounties.

Oh dear, that story has brought up a second Name of the Day: Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama.

But there can be only one, so
