The past, comrades, is fluid. Only the future is certain. El Omnipotente sat down to catch up on his father's dispatches after a long period of ignoring them. He was shocked to find himself referred to, still, as "El Omnipotente". The joke, he felt, had been stretched WAY too thin.

"I didn't know you were still calling me THAT!".

"Well, what do you want to be called?".

El Omnipotente gave it some thought. He cast his mind back to a time, many years ago, in the fourth grade, when he came home and announced to his parents that he was to be known, henceforth, as "David". It didn't last long, at the time, but it seems to have lingered with him.

El Omnipotente chooses to be known as "David". Baslow will go back and edit some of the more recent blogs invoking his name to reflect this change.

The moving finger writes and, having writ, goes back and revises the damned thing...
