"The Value Of Useless Knowledge" - Erwin Panofsky (1892-1968)

My post earlier today in which I wrote that "they" claimed it was a real photo of the Na Pali cliffs reminded me of an outstanding example from a few years ago of an individual stepping up and taking responsibility, something we're sorely lacking today. On September 23, 2004 USA Today reported that Andrew Wilson of Branson, Missouri had persuaded a judge to give him permission to legally change his name to They (no surname). Wilson said that people are always saying things like "They do this" or "They're to blame for that" and that it was time that someone was willing to take responsibility and he was the guy to do it.
