Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Unfortunate last names

While I wait for the editing and cover art to be completed for my new science-fiction political-satire, Time is Irreverent, I have plenty of work to do, running my talent agency. One of those jobs includes updating my list of more than 7,000 college talent buyers. It’s a tedious task, as I have to visit individual college websites to find out who has left their job and who has been hired as a replacement.

Keeping the research amusing are the interesting, or unfortunate, names some people have. Two of the most unforgettable include a person with the last name “Frankenberry,” and a woman with the last name “Screws.” Can you imagine the grief a woman would get in any social situation with the last name Screws? She must be one tough cookie. But, I suppose, anything would beat having the last name “Trump.”
