Sometimes, having a recognizable name can be a mixed blessing. More than once, when I have presented my credit card at a restaurant, I get a chuckle from a waitress or waiter, they notice my name and say something like: "Alright ... I got Willie Nelson's autograph."
Other times, however, people see my name in print and think, "What? Bill Nelson? In a bar fight?"
