Bowker's nickname, for the record

It was interesting to see my suggested nickname immediately get misread as "the Baptist" . True, I was playing with the John the Baptist concept when I suggested John the Battist (as in batter) because he heralds the coming of future stars. As i recall, I listed them as: 1)the Angel of Crush (in subsequent comments, someone suggested combining his two names in the Anvil, which I like better -- for the moment, he's still Angel Baby to me) 2)The Alderman (as in Alderson has my vote to help restore sound government to the rotation, or corrupt government if that's what it takes to win); 3)Mad Bum 4)Nick "High" Noonan.... or something like that. I think I also suggested as a cruel play on his name that Castillo be called Ft. Stopgap.

My main point was a longing for more creative nicknames (whoever coined Magellan, I sing your praise!). In retrospect, considering his power, I should have proposed John the Boptist. 

And Tim shall always be The Enchanter!
