“Name names!” the crusty editor insisted to his young reporters. “No story is complete without the names of everyone involved.”

The newest member of his staff filed the following report on a local disaster:

“Three farms in our area were affected by the severe lightning storm that struck Thursday night. Henry Johnson reported a fire in his barn. Wilma Preston said several trees were knocked down by the violence of the storm. Fred Wilson reported that three of his cows were struck by lightning. Their names were Bessie, Gilda, and Plug.”
