See More Richard.

Oliver Kamm has an entry criticising an article in the Socialist Worker about the Cold War, by the blogging commie who goes under the nom de plume 'Lenin'. Initially it mght surprise any decent person that someone would name themselves in honour of one of history's most prolific murderers, but it easy to sympathise with his desire for a psuedonym when you see that his real name is 'Richard Seymour'. What sort of cruel parents would name their child 'Seymour, Dick'? Were Heywood Jablome and I.P. Freeley unavailable?
