Tracys are taking over the world!

What is going on here? All my life, the only other Tracys I ever heard of were Spencer and Dick. (And, please, if you ever meet someone with the last name "Tracy," don't ask him about his brother Dick. Just don't.) But, now, all of a sudden, there are Tracys everywhere I look! (Is it because Irish Catholics breed like rats? Was it just a matter of time?)

Besides Sister Mary Tracy, above, who's in the news in Seattle, there's also a Ben Tracy at CBS, below...

...a Marc Tracy who writes for The New Republic (and is Jewish!)...

...and a Will Tracy, who edits The Onion.

And I wonder if maybe -- just maybe -- there's something bigger going on here:

But I wouldn't worry about it.
