A new equivalent of "Joe Blow"?

A little more searching shows that there was a Christina among those
mentioned on the Web as missing at Khao Lak. The name wasn't Blomee; I
won't say what it was. Maybe the journalist had sense enough not to put the
real name in his article. Maybe he just chose an unusual replacement, to
make sure he wouldn't use somebody's real name. But what about the
editor(s) (if any) at AP and at the hundreds of newspapers running the
piece? The name appears in the first line of the article: the "grabber" or
whatever it's called.
