Now Ask me why I Changed my Name

I know some of our readership remains intimidated by the comments page. But I don't want you to miss the link Laura provided us, to The Zombie Survival Guide, written by Max Brooks who in addition to many other things is Mel Brooks' kid. Isn't it weird when celebrities take ethnicity-free stage names and their kids still wind up inheriting them? See also Charlie (Estévez) Sheen and Jakob (not Zimmerman) Dylan. I was chagrined to learn that Michael Douglas's birth name was Michael Douglas, but father Kurt's birth name more than compensated me: Issur Danielovitch Demsky.
