Calling My Column
I notice that there is an active industry in cornering names for commercial enterprises, including writing. Apparently, copyrights and even patents have been issued, to tie up names until someone makes some money and has to buy their own name if they have not protected it. In my case, I have written unpublished columns for years, or is it generations? I have done radio and television programs which I have not protected, some running in Asia after fifty years.
"Don To Earth" is a favorite tag of mine. "Things of Nature" is another. A favorite book is Instincts of the Herd, and I write columns which specify or detail ideas indicated there. That book is over a hundred years old. Some titles of series of columns coming from it could be "We Must Be Herd" or "So You Must Be Herd" or "Have You Herd?" Maybe I should register them anyway.
My Country, 'Tis of Thee is herd material. So are the followers of Mohammed, though the Sunnis and Shiites hate each other as did the Protestants and Catholics of old. There used to be Coptic Catholics and Eastern Orthodox descendants of the Roman Church, but now Catholic means the old Roman Catholic. But back to my own concern with rights and ownership of names.
I'm not sure if I favour a general tag which can cover everything, or rather anything, as "Don To Earth" can, or if I should have series titles which indicate or hint at more limited interests. Dear me, I seem to have made a column of this. I'll be back.
