The Unique Name Syndrome
Having joined Facebook recently, I have come to discover that I am the victim of "Unique Name Syndrome". I admit to some small regional fame in my youth, and was surely known to many more people than I could have known.

Since my name is not only unique but also memorable, it is likely that scores of individuals have googled me in these past years.

Facebook has given them a way to reach out to me. I can only say that not everyone ages gracefully, myself undoubtedly among them, and that some sleeping dogs should emphatically be left reclining.
