It ain’t me babe

I have a famous namesake.  At least,  he’s a lot more famous than I am.  So, if you google me, you get this guy.  Unfortunately, a lot of what he’s famous for is being in trouble with the law.  Not terrible stuff,mostly white collar transgressions (my favorite kind) .  He’s a restaurateur who has at various times owned and operated some well known, upscale restaurants in Philadelphia.   He seems to be good at that….not so good at paying his taxes.

He’s ruining what’s left of my  good name and I don’t know quite what  to do about it.  Also, he’s older than I am and, in all modesty, worse looking than I am.  So again, if you’re looking ME up you get an uglier and older version who’s a crook.  There’s something grossly unfair about this. But then again, it  could be a  lot worse.  Think about all the guys out there named Jeffrey Dahmer.  Now that’s a real problem.

(or even worse than that… the guy on the RIGHT could have my name!)
