    Exactly what I was alluding to. It is quite the slippery slope when we start being offended by every little thing in life. Maybe people named Cox will be next.

    When I was in Elementary School at Grosvenor Elementary School in Bethesda in the 60's our Principal was a black man named Mr White. He wore taps on his shoes, you could hear him coming down the hallway on those terrazzo floors.
    We giggled all the time about his name..

    I have to admit, it really is time to rename things - like Cuckold Creek.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    My maiden name should offer trees.

    My 4th grade teacher's first name was Gay, we had a visitor to the class one day and he introduced himself "Hi I'm Bob", and her reply was "Hi, I'm Gay" and the entire class of 9 year olds erupted in laughter.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    I worked years ago with a guy whose last name was Hor. I pity any daughters he may have had with that last name knowing the ribbing HE took.
