Change your middle name to Hussein

Got this message from a neighbor/longtime colleague, David Budin:

"Last week I sent a message jokingly suggesting that we all change our middle names to Hussein until November 4. I mean, I thought I was joking. Then a lot of people e-mailed back and said they were actually doing that -- and they were forwarding my message to their friends, etc.

So to make it "official," my brother Noah and I have created this website called, where you can go and "change" your middle name to Hussein, and also read related articles and see related videos, etc.

Visit the site -- and, if you want to, sign in. And pass it along to anyone else you know who might be interested.

It's not so much that it's pro-Obama (which it obviously is), as it is -- to quote Mark Mothersbaugh's description of his group Devo -- "anti-stupidity."


David Hussein Budin"

 I went there post haste and changed my middle name. My new name until November 5 is Susan Hussein Miller.

I never liked my middle name anyways

Norm Hussein Roulet - I think I'll keep that past the 5th!
