I am confused by an inconsistency I am seeing. I think it points to
something I missing about object names and references.

Using the Object Inspector you can set the name of a card, for example,  to

But when you retrieve the name of the object in line of code you get back
the object type followed by the name in Quotes, like this

*put *the name of the this card into tCard

-> card "MyCardName"
