Signs Of The Times
Sometimes I wonder what bad star I was born under. Not only do I have to share a surname with The Worst President Ever, my birthday falls on the same day as Dick Cheney’s.
I sometimes wonder about how many people of good character had to change their family name after a guy named Adolf had forever trashed “Hitler.” The comedian Craig Ferguson even created a stage persona he called Bing Hitler, a hybridization of crooner Bing Crosby with the infamous dictator’s name, spoofing bizarro singer Marilyn Manson (Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Manson).
Depending how things turn out in the next couple of years, my name might end up being Mudd.
