Destiny calls their name

I love the name "Terry Teachout." For a critic, what instant authority! For years I've meant to keep a list of hyperappropriate names, like Elaine Scarry, author of The Body In Pain, Marshall Brain, author of How Stuff Works, John Cloud, historian for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or my friend Betty Twiggs, landscape architect. One from yesterday's Times is over the top: Louise Mirrer, owner of a house of mirrors.
