    No relative of mine

    I want to go on record (once and for all) and say that I am not related to Ross Douthat, the abortion-gay marriage obsessed conservative columnist for The New York Times, nor do I wish to be.

    In fact, I once sent him an email asking him to consider changing his last name (because so many people were asking me if he were my son or nephew). I reasoned that as I had held the Douthat name long before he was born, he should be the one to give it up. He did not reply, but that does not change the situation: I am neither related to him, nor do I wish to be.
