    the absurd names people give their kids. There are tons of John F. Kennedys, Marilyn Monroes, Martin Martins, Steve Martins, etc. I'll bet there are more than a few Elvis Presleys in Las Vegas. We won't even get into the various ethnic names.

    You can't assume that anybody is using a fake name. No matter how strange it might be.

      Nearly peed my pants when he showed me his license.

      Obama wants to keep the wealth amongst Americans. McCain wants to transfer the wealth to corporations. If that's socialism... color me social.

      a pretty common surname here in NM.   To give your kid a first name that's the same as their last name is rather cruel, though.

        Maybe a girl whose first name was Duran married a boy whose last name was Duran.  We had a Congressional candidate back in 1984 (who in fact now works for the Obama campaign) in NH named Dudley Dudley: she was originally named Dudley Webster until she married Tom Dudley.
