Off the subject, but Michael Johnson wanting to change his name reminded me
of a story I saw in the paper a few weeks ago.

A man in England was having a terrible time dealing with one of the banks
there. (I forget which one, I'll call it XYZ.) He had his name changed by
deed-poll to "XYZ Bank are Fascist Bastards" ... then went into the bank
and insisted they open a cheque account for him with his new name printed
on the cheques.

He had a wonderful time writing cheques until the bank finally convinced
(forced?) him to take his business elsewhere. He said that the 30 pounds it
cost him to change his name was the best money he had ever spent! :-)
