I've got nothing at all against things Irish. Indeed, I proudly tout some
Irish among my ancestors and have had *great* fun visiting Eire. But as
names go, one that connotes Irishness would sorely misdescribe me. (The
association would probably offend a great many Irish, too!) So please
understand my naming preferences as not anti-Irish but rather as pro-accuracy.

T.0. (it's a zero, folks!) Morrow
