What's In a Name?

Well, apparently not a "Y," reports the Austin American-Statesman. We have all been a bit confused at times at the seemingly frequent name changes of Texas politician Carole Keeton Rylander Strayhorn Smith Jones Barney, but I never expected this "One Tough Grandma" to forget her own name!
Carole Keeton Strayhorn, the onetime schoolteacher hoping to oust Gov. Rick Perry in November, misspelled her last name, leaving out the Y, in her declaration of intent to run as an independent for governor.

In two parts of the one-page form, filed last week, her last name is spelled Strahorn, the Texas Secretary of State's office said today.
But what might be the most extraordinary part about this whole story is ... the lawyer took the blame!
