I don't know about this, I'm Jewish.
There are about 20 pages of ads in Adweek and Ad Age today, in tribute to O. Burtch Drake, the outgoing Chairman of the AAAA. As the child of immigrants, I don't understand the whole initial before the name thing, though I suppose if you have to have an initial O is a good one, because it sounds a bit Jeanette MacDonald calling to Nelson Eddy, "O. Burtch, won't you please come hither."
So, say you're sitting next to O. Burtch on a plane, what do you call him? O? Burtch? Or O Burtch?
Oh, boy. Won't someone please help me?
