Here's my question:
Are we required to call Ron Ron "Metta World Peace?" Is this some kind of moral obligation since he filed some legal papers? Or is it simply a courtesy we pay to those who wish to change their name? Does Ron deserve this courtesy?
Personally, I'm calling him Ron Artest. If I find a need to call him Metta, I will. But I don't know that I have to engage in weird, narcissistic and crazy if I don't want to. (It helps, for me personally, that I think Metta World Peace is an hysterical name. So I'm not bitter, just incredulous.)
But, seriously, what do you guys think the moral and natural law is on this matter, the human and decency code? I still marvel that the announcers respectfully call him Metta World Peace.
