Ever since being forced to read Dickens, I have often been amazed as to how one’s name often describes what he does. J. K. Rowling uses this technique quite effectively in her books…

Usually such a combination I have found, is often a good omen and usually leads to a good conclusion.

I was taken with the name of the arbitrator for the Delmarva-Bluewater Deal. Lawerence Hamermesh will take an active role in bring a deal together between these two parties….The first three letters of the first name tie quite well into his occupation as a professor of law at Widner University.

But his second name has the greater implication. Better than anything I could say or do, it describes his task for the next three weeks. He will have to mesh the interests of Bluewater and Delmarva, and it will take a hammer to do it………..

I see this as a good omen. Just as Washington had to “wash a ton” of assumptions away and prove that men could govern themselves without a king, and Lincoln had to “link” the “ole” country back together after it had split apart, I believe “Ole” Hamermesh will do as his name implies…..

Like Luke Skywalker,…… his name…… is his destiny……
