In his humor column, Gene Weingarten says his term “julatto,” for people who are half- Jewish and half-Gentile, describes “many excellent people of my acquaintance, including my own children, the Czar’s children, Pat the Perfect’s children, the Auxiliary Czar’s children, and no less formidable a figure than Tom the Butcher, the editor of my column,” Weingarten wrote.
