What's in a name...
W&D notes that this week The Czech Republic announced that it now wishes to be called Czechia.
But W&D is worried that a trend to change countries' names might commence. Ponder the actions of a President Donald Trump, who, when he ran The Trump Organisation, named almost everything after himself: Trump Vineyard Estates; Trump Towers; Trump Plaza; Trump Palace; Trump Parc; Trump Place; etc.
Consider also the self-indulgence of: Trump Ice; Trump Chocolate; Trump Vodka; Trump Steaks; etc.
And what greater self-indulgence than to dispose of the memory of Amerigo Vespucci . Can we look forward to the United States of Trump? Or perhaps Trump Country?
