Deputy Dewdrop

I had to sit in on a meeting at Santa Barbara City College on Thursday. The woman who wants me to write an article on the matter hooked me up with a parking pass. It was only today that I noticed that they misspelled my name in a way that makes me question the parking department's familiarity with first names, English, and logic in general.

Dew Mxxxxx. Because there's an abundance of people with first names based on the word "dew" outside of Faulkner novels. I suppose, however, that if they think this is an acceptable first name, it's at least better that they chose this spelling and not the alternative.
