Last year a man from England named Bart Simpson was arrested for having a firearm in an airport. Simpson is 56, so you can't blame his parents for giving him the kind of name that would result in ridicule and, eventually, a life of crime. ('The Simpsons' has been on for that long. It only seems like it.)
It was just fate that he ended up with the same name as a cartoon troublemaker. And when his trial began earlier this month fate struck again. Bart Simpson would be facing a judge named Mr. Burns.
