What's in a name?

Just in case you didn't witness his meagerly attended soapbox speeches, or his harassment of folks at county fairs, AdFreak is reporting that Marvin Richardson, an Idaho would-be politician/strawberry farmer, has figured out a better way to let people know what he stands for: by legally changing his middle name to Pro-Life. Because Idaho voting laws are designed to keep political issues off the ballot, Pro-Life had to drop his first and last name. And while Pro-Life's wife hasn't quite taken to the name change just yet, he plans to keep running in elections every 2 years under the moniker until he lands a seat... or his family intervenes.
