8. This Xe thing reminds me of what happened with a certain performer's name change...
He went from a one word name to being described as "The artist formerly known as Prince who subsequently changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol". I guess filing his tax returns was getting to be a bother because he goes by Prince again now.

So, now we have news from "The corrupt war profiteering company formerly known as Blackwater which subsequently changed its name to what sounds like a video game console model". Same stinking pile of dog shit.
