That kind of stuff never fails to amaze me, Auralie. When I was in
<br>college, I had a good friend named Richard Anthony Dwyer II. His
<br>parents were divorced and he lived with his mother. During our
period <br>of friendship, Richard discovered that his re-married father
had sired <br>another son that he named--guess?--Richard Anthony Dwyer
