Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

(Quote attributed to Mark Twain.)

This is the second time in memory this has occured. I know I have a common name (for Members of the Tribe of a certain age/generation), and the middle name is wrong. Still, it gives one kind of a jolt.

The last time this happened, I was reading the Los Angeles Times while waiting for a flight at LAX. I saw my name and decided to visit the Mutual of Omaha self-serve flight insurance before boarding. As Woody Allen said, "It’s not that I’m afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
