Finally this morning … how does Malibu Ocean Elementary School grab you?
That’s the recommended new name for Point Dume Marine Sciences Elementary School.

Some people apparently love it.

Others … not quite sure why the Point Dume name has to disappear.

Malibu Ocean Elementary School abbreviates to MOES … and the first thing to our brain-addled conscience is Moe’s Tavern.

We humbly suggest that the elementary school’s official mascot be … the Point Dume Flaming MOES ( … see illustration … ).
