Survey says . . . (a little early because I've got a minute)

I have to be honest--Justice Scalia has never commented on this blog that I know of, although I am pretty sure he's a regular reader. I was just trying to get him to come clean by including his name in the poll. Coy, that one.

There is potential for mischief when it comes to speculating exactly why I named my personal sidearm after one of our commenters, particularly considering the options presented . . . but I'll leave that fun to you. The correct answer is Monique, a person I've never met but whose comments (particularly those on the last post!) and personal correspondence I have appreciated. I think she and I were in contact about something around the time I acquired this sidearm, and her francophonic variation on one of the Church's great mothers fit perfectly. And speaking of fitting perfectly, I'm surprised that Bella Band doesn't list "holster" among the applications of its versatile product.

(Need I mention that we are not idiots and are very serious about gun safety, and yes we've heard that scary statistic? Well, just in case.)

You mean the scary statistic one of my favorite economists, John Lott, gave?

On a side note, so to speak, bella band as a holster! I've been missing out.

I actually heard Dr. Lott present one of his firearm studies. And he is one of the factors in my gun ownership.

I'm honored to be named after your personal arsenal. I'll wear the distinction proudly. Do I get a badge or something ;-)

BTW, I hope it doesn't disqualify me that I don't have an ounce of French in me. I know, the name is misleading. But, I'm afraid I'm a 100% pure-bred Latina. I was able to lure my husband with a few of my spicy Latin recipes.

Liz, but everybody likes swimming pools!

Monique, I don't have an ounce of Hebrew in me. ;) I'll see what I can come up with by way of a badge.

I was right! What do I win?

Hmmm, you'd better have a badge too. Guess I know what I'll be doing today. :D
