Subject: RE: BS: My claim to fame - whats yours?
I work at a University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Today I met a young man, a student, named Lateef Ledbetter. I asked him to spell his name for me, because I was filling out a form for him. He spelled "Lateef"—which is what I really wanted—and then began to spell "Ledbetter," but I interrupted him. "Like Leadbelly?" I asked, because I already knew how to spell that. "Yeah, exactly," he answered. "He was my great-great-great-uncle. I'm from Mississippi."
