Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Greetings and salutations

I can't say those three words without thinking of Happy Harry Hard-On from that Christian Slater movie "Pump Up the Volume" where he played the rogue high school radio DJ. Anyway, other than being as "horny as a 10-peckered owl," I'm stumped by how to refer to a source for a story I'm writing.

When you call to address someone, how do you refer to someone to him when he is listed as something like:

M. Howard Pierce

I mean, the easy way is to simply call him Mr. Pierce. But, do you say "Hi, M. Howard. I'm blah blah blah" or do you call him Howard? or M?

    Ugh, this is almost as bad as the whole Miss/Mrs./Ms thing. I would assume that he goes by "Howard". He wants to show that Howard is not a nickname, nor is it his first name, and he wants you to distinguish him from all the other Howard Pierces.

    Or you could ask him what his friends call him.

    I say go with the Mr. thing, but if he quickly becomes a jerk, kindly inform him that only pretentious a-holes would go by M. Howard... or ask him if the M stands for Moe and he just got tired of all the 3 Stooges jokes...
