"A few years ago new york. Times writer named bruce feiler attempted to quantify you know because the the decline of the middle initial in american public life if you look at the congressional when what he called of members of congress is their roster across the rotation if you look at the the members of congress and the united eighty four percent of you members of congress had middle names in one thousand nine hundred seventy it was still seventy percent so it held up into And then the baby boomers killed killed it by two thousand nineteen. It had dropped to me. When did he do this work. Two thousand fourteen. I can't rebound writing by the last day in the last decade and a drop to thirty eight percent. Now you're not saying they don't have middle names just that they're listed. This is the use of the middle initial middle. Names are more common than ever and as you point out people are maybe giving kids a number of middle names because just for the kind of the fun of the parents. The child will not benefit by this in any way and might in fact be in our case. Our daughter has tried a couple of different over middle names. But what happened. Is that her first. Three names her first name to middle names actually form name like jeb stuart. Nobody called him. J e b. They called him. Jeb save time and and then apparently jeb. Bush was named after him weird but But yeah our daughter for a while on her softball team was known as the name that her first three initials make interesting. Yeah but that did not stick it. Did she still has called that name by several by people that know are and i bet you'll have the softball name. Yeah it's kind of cool. Sports name many parents who have given their and it's really is just. I think it's kind of the ego of childbirth like the creative impulse like why. Why give a kid one name if you could do six. Yeah why not put mcgeorge in there but the loss of middle initials. I'm assuming is maybe more of an egalitarian impulse. Sort of the jimmy. Carter vibe of like. I'm just a not one of these washington people. The reason i didn't they my child kenneth wayne jennings before because it sounded a little bit prakash. The fourth is always a bad. Well also he will be the third now because everybody would have moved up. We don't do family. That's not correct so there was. You gave your son like like cool hippie name like dylan like a handkerchief around the heads middle name. So he could actually be t- dylan jennings if you want to be a. But today i feel like that's also been colored his previous just by all the kinda robber barons and j pierpont morgan's and j gays and t boone. Pickens did it. But t dylan. Sounds very bohemian. To me tiki dylan. Jenny used to sound bohemian. I think to have the first initial. I like i think. Picasso experimented with being pc. Ruiz picasso on when he would sign his work. Or maybe it was. Yeah maybe maybe p. or something but yeah pablo ruis. Picasso is a hard name to say and it also not for them but pablo. Ruiz ru public delightfully off. The latin lantana us us us northern europeans. Who can't y But it doesn't sound like a cool painter. You're right you can see why. He went with pablo picasso bub-bubba. It's the rhythm of it. Nobody ever called pablo picasso. Bruce feiler probably all his wives mistresses. Bruce feiler also looked at pulitzer winners. Found that in the twenties and thirties. The majority of them had middle names by the forties and fifties. It was down to half. Then there's a big dip between the eighties and the nineties from forty three to twenty six percent between ninety and people who previously were using middle initials Dropped them nicholas kristof writing in the new york times always nicholas kristof and then he wrote a column about how You know what i just. This just conveys the wrong thing anymore. This now seems old timey. And i'm gonna lose the deal. It was around the same time that obama's foundation lost the h. It just it just started to seem like a relic. I guess to me. It sounds like a board room boardroom. and it's still true in i i've thought about this before because you know the. Us governments increasingly gerontocracy. And that's why. Donald j trump and joseph r biden still kind of have the will have the middle initial probably on their presidential portrait and the same is true in Among latter day saints the leadership of the church is in the seventies and eighties and nineties. And they all still have the middle initial because they came up in a time when that conveyed official status in america. You gotta have a middle initial on your name plate and somehow the the hyphen in exile alexandria okay. Ceo cortez is totally different right. The hyphen seems progressive. And it's no longer feels aristocratic. It feels i. I because the names are latino. Names that i don't know because the suggestion is that the her parents combine to make a lino a. Hyphen name. yes and that's true today. That's true you will see more. Yeah hyphenated kids at a seattle middle-school are coming from progressive parents keeping the mom's name around at least for a generation right. You could just keep going forever. You know the their kids might have four hyphenated last stadiums and their kids will have eight but she's a c. which is very jfk. She is the first american politicians since lbj j to to have the three letter thing. She's going to have an airport sunday. I do think we lose something in in losing the middle initial. Because there's been some research on what middle initials do convey in two thousand fourteen to Social scientists. i know you love these guys. we're just one more thing about ao.

Uh And we just gotta keep doing our job and hopefully like, hopefully it's gonna miss 49 points. 17 rebounds, 10 assists from the former Every plea, Jean he played all 48 minutes last night. I know I'm using this term a lot. But hope is not a strategy. Can't hope the guy is going to miss you make somebody else shoot You ready for a strategy that hasn't been employed yet.

So Bryce and bite your encouraging Him to kind of go for it when it's on the line, So rather than you know, just not getting the fairway or something like that and try to try to play for the next shot.

I didn't go into this project with pieces, but a big linking pieces showed up halfway through. So what happened what led me into this? Somebody's what this book is. About is how we deal with these big wrenching changes in our lives back hallway light quake. And like what we're in now. And I got interested in these because I went through a life quake some years ago as you know, I I got cancer as a new TAB. About was that same year as the great recession and my family was hit very hard. And then my dad who has Parkinson's Lost Control of his mind. This was a man who was never a depressed admitted his life. And he tried to take his life. Times in twelve weeks. And this was kind of a big crisis. In every way, you can have a crisis, the conversations that we had to have. unhabitable eye like difficult conversations and these were difficult conversations that were impossible to have. But I'm the story guy and I'm the meaning guy in one morning on Monday morning I woke up and I said, well, your idea like what if I send my data question because my dad was always a bit of a storyteller. And I sent question like what toys did you play with a kid? Couldn't move his fingers at this point Dan. But he thought about it all week he dictated his answer to Syria who spit it out he began to edit it in at work and so I. Also another one like dummy balance you grumpy.

There's all field of narrative adolescence, narrative medicine and kind of storytelling becoming kind of thing that people talked about at that time and so what happened and you know this makes me think of your own life and how you ended up in this conversation is when I began to tell the story to people everybody had a similar story. My wife had a headache and went to the hospital and died my daughter tried to kill herself. I. had nervous breakdown on my television in your case and and I thought well, no one else to tell their story anymore and. Let me see what I can figure out because people were saying like the life I'm living is not the life I expect like I'm living life out of order in some way. And I call my wife one night and I said. I got to figure out how to help. And I don't know I'm going GonNa find and I don't know how to do it but I feel compelled to do this and so I set out on this journey. What became Three four years crisscrossing the country collecting what became hundreds of life stories of Americans all ages all walks of life all fifty states and you name it damn. People lost homes, lost limbs, changed careers, genders, Religions got. Sober got a bad marriages. And at the end of it, I had it was powerful, but it was too much. I had six thousand pages of. Transcripts a thousand hours of interviews and I ended up doing something. I've never done thirty years of writing books. I got a whole team of people and we spent a year coating these. Combing through them debating I'm kind of beating one against the head trying to figure out. What was the big message? What was the big theme coming out of it?
