Am I Fucking out of my mind? Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin from West Virg.was just on the weather channel.

Earl Ray Tomblin; Earl Ray!....... Was he actually named after the murderer James Earl Ray?
Or is Earl Ray in W.V. as common as a Justin or Tiffany in Ca.?

2. First of all: James Earl *Ray* was the guy who killed Martin Luther King.

Second: James Earl *Jones* is an actor. As far as I know there isn't any James Earl Ray Jones.

As to your question:

3. Who is James Earl Ray Jones

Are you thinking James Earl Ray who killed MLK?

Are you confusing him with James Earl Jones, the actor.

At any rate, Tomblin was born years before James Earl Ray killed MLK.

4. Acording to Wikipedia, Governor Tomblin was born on March 15, 1952

 

More than 16 years before the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I don't know, but your reaction to the man's name is not really logical.

Honey, you can't fling a cat in the South without hitting an Earl, a Ray, an Earl Ray, a Ray Earl, or a Rayette Earlene. Don't sweat that stuff. There's work to be done.

10. Maybe. Don't worry. It happens to the best of us. Breathe slowly, hyperventilation is dangerous.

Remembrance of the death of MLK is still a painful thing to many of us. Take care.

12. Well James Earl Jones once said "People will come, Ray. People will most definitely come."

 

It all makes sense now.

20. You sort of got carried away on this one. The Gov's name type is rather common in

dueling banjo land. Some of the name are pretty cute.

21. I spent sixth grade in Alamogordo, NM. There was a Joe Bob and a Joe Tom in my class.

 

I'd never heard of a Joe Tom before that.
