Some years ago, I was home on vacation (that is, visiting my mother out-of-state) and saw this item in the newspaper. In Detroit, this fellow was resisting arrest and the struggle got really mean, and he wound up sustaining injuries from which he died.
On the one hand, OK, too bad, it happens.
On the other hand, I had to wonder what other end this gentleman could have met; his mother having named him “Malice Green.”
Did either of his parents ever bother to consider what that name means?
Give your child a sensible name!
If your parents failed to do so, you may want to give yourself a sensible name.
