I knew a Richard Head in high school. His middle name was "Aire". His parents must have hated him.

There's a newspaper editor for a major Toronto newspaper with my name. He writes op/ed sometimes and 3 times I have received angry phone calls looking for him.

I wonder how many times he has received angry phone calls from people looking for me?

I've met him. Interesting guy.
His younger brother plays at my tennis club and I've played him now and again.
Also the other reporter mentioned in the article, Margaret Wente, is mhy parents' neighbour.
Spooky how many connections we have.
