    I hope she votes for Obama.<br><br>SRSLY, he should be shot. He’s lucky she didn’t kill him for just changing the name–but to change it to something so controversial? Sigh. scary stuff.

    What part of a partnership allows for this?!? What a dick! “She has really been supportive through it all”? What kind of idiot is she?

    Just speechless.
    And a little freaked out.

    I’m surprised the HMH office passed it through, round here its the mom who signs the name papers.

    The guy is a weiner, but seriously it is a little amusing to me because I can envision the accent when he says it. I’m suprized mom didn’t say anything about seeing this on the local news because that is where it’s out of. Poor kid.

    If my husband did that … well I wouldn’t have a husband with which to speak of anymore.

    That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard of. What is wrong with people?

    Oh wait, I guess I’ll do the same but a Canadian version. I’ll call my unborn child Harper Dion Layton Ruttan. *snort* as if.

    I happened to be on the phone with a gf while I was reading this, and I read out loud for her. Her first statement”He’d be so dead, and I’d be walking away with all his money”Mine: “He so got kicked in the balls for that, no more babies for him!”

    Here both parents have to sign the forms.
    But if DH ever tried anything like that I’d change my name – back to what it was before I married him!

    OMG!!!  I’m speechless too!!  May his baby producing body part shrivel up and stay that way for a loooooonnnggg time to come (which I hope he can’t – ’cause of the shriveled up part)That’s just wrong – on so many levels.

    This has been very important news here. Then again, I’m a couple of hours from Kingsport. I keep thinking the wife has been so “supportive” because she’s drugged up!

    I’m so comforted by the knowledge that people with such superior judgment are allowed to vote.

    I’d heard about the baby name, but hadn’t heard he’d GONE BEHIND THE MOTHER’S BACK to do it. Words aren’t adequate.

    Castration, yeah–and all the feedings and diaper changes of that baby’s infancy, yes. And full child support–<em>after</em> taking him to the cleaners.But I’m with Kerry Allen, this speaks so badly of the average voter’s IQ and common sense, it’s scary.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Hey, Fella, Bubba, whatever, you just done good!

    You’ve made it quite clear how you feel about women and their rights…even if it involves your daughter’s name. Good going.

    Barefoot and pregnant, baby. That’s the way we like ’em.

    Jewell (absolutely horrified, and I believe, rightfully so)

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
