Terry M. Clark who?

I always thought that my name might be fairly rare, but Google says otherwise.

I "googled" myself--something you couldn't do 10 years ago--at least in public without embarrassing yourself as people gawked and thought you were being rude or gross.

Instead of just me, I found a bunch of Terry M. Clarks, some with doctors degrees and professors, others with creativity galore, even more than one Terry Michael Clark.

Hmph. I understand being confused with the cute country and western singer Terri Clark. I had to quit wearing a white hat so people wouldn't get us confused.

And the search also shows the great jazz musician Clark Terry, and if I weren't Caucasian, people would confuse us too because of my terrific musical ability.

So, apparently the Terry M. Clark name carries a lot of creativity and intellectual ability. I guess I need to change my nmae huh?
