Reader talks turkey with columnist

Dear editor, As I read Ted Brown's column (June 9) about the turkey on his property I kept thinking about the name he's chosen to give his resident turkey-- not the traditional Tom, but Abe the Turkey instead. I kept wondering why Abe Turkey couldn't be renamed Ted Turkey. Maybe Ted sounds a little bit too much like the more common Tom, but then Abe has decided to make his home on Ted Brown's property, right? And as Mr. Brown says, with emphasis and some capital letters to boot, "he's MY turkey...." Ted Turkey living on Ted Brown's land makes more sense to me. And the name isn't exactly ordinary, I would think. Ted is usually the name we give to teddy bears, not Tom. But on second thought Mr. Brown-- or should I call you Ted?-- you might have a problem with a Ted Turkey in your midst, especially as you sit down for Thanksgiving dinner. Can you re-christen the bird Ted now and go back to good old Abe in the fall? Jennifer Enright, Acton
