Even With a License, There Is a Limit

According to Stan Isaacs of Newsday (Morning Briefing, April 9), Roger Craig's "humm baby" has become such a popular expression his daughter was unsuccessful in trying to get it on a personalized license plate for him "because (humm baby) and related spellings like humm bebe have been taken by hip fans."

This will come as bad news to the felons assigned the task of stamping out these eight-letter plates since personalized plates are limited to seven letters in California.

What's your best guess? Is Mr. Isaac just gullible, or is he making up cute stories so he won't have to go out and find them?
