What Will She Goes As?


by Natalie Shapero



It was not lost on anyone

that the baby was due to be

born near Halloween:


We made a list of iconic

infants: Moses in the rushes;

manger Jesus; baby Jessica,

slipped down a well in '87,

rescued on live TV. Some

people credit the Gulf

War Scud with commencing

the age of cable news, but

it was Baby Jessica, no

contest. Even so, I prefer

the Lindbergh Baby.

Both parents could dress as

Lindbergh: matching

leather jackets and flap hats

with appended glasses,

bomber brown. This costume

works the best if the baby

is nowhere to be found.
