You're my son now, David (continued)

It was charming to hear that Madonna and that bloke who used to make films have been learning some of David's language, in order to "keep him in touch with where he came from" by dropping the odd word into everyday conversation.

Of course, they could keep him in touch with where he came from by keeping his family in touch with him, but David's father, Yohane Banda, has been reduced to appealing through the media to find out how David's doing:

He insisted he did not want his son back, but said: "I don't have her phone numbers and mailing addresses.

"I want to find out how my son is but I don't know how I can do it."


Well, a subscription to Hello! might be a starting point, Mr. Banda.

We assume, therefore, that the christening and circumcision (one confirmed, the latter rumoured) haven't actually been OKed by David's parent. It's going to come as something of a shock for Mr. Banda to discover Regis Philbin is to be his son's godfather. More of a shock, we suggest, when he finds out exactly what a Regis Philbin is.
