Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

Welcome to the world Trig

KTUU has pictures on its Web site of Gov. Palin’s new baby boy, who is a cutie patootie. His name is Trig Paxson Van Palin. Kind of a corny name, if you ask me, but it’s original and falls in line with her other four kids’ names: Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper.

I guess I shouldn’t criticize about baby names. Older folks think that Jade’s name is Jane. Younger folks wonder why we didn’t choose Jaden or Jada.

Someone should send the governor the book “Expecting Adam,” which is a mother’s experience giving birth to and raising a baby with Down syndrome. Another good book—a novel actually—about a family raising a Down syndrome baby is “Jewel” by Bret Lott.
