[LMB] Stephen Wright's birthday

Believe it or not, I've had this very same conversation on some other email lists...including some who thought I was some other Steve and it took MONTHS to prove to their satisfaction I had my own, independent existence!  (That was a paranoid bunch, and no mistake!)

Not related to any of those below, either, as far as I know.  Physically, I'm probably closest to the wrestler.  Temperamentally, probably closest to the novelist.  (In both cases, 'closest' should be regarded as being an extremely loose definition of the word...)

But I have it on fairly universal opinion from those who have actually met me that I'm unique, and that the world should be grateful.

Step-hen

I once got contacted because a Brazee I never heard of wrote bad 
checks.   But every Brazee I have met is related to me.    One time I 
was in an Italian meat market when a couple heard my wife call me 
Howard.   They thought that was some big coincidence (I didn't), and he 
pulled out his ID to show me.   His name was Howard J. Brace III.    My 
name is Howard J. Brazee III.    Now, *that* is coincidence.
