A friend of mine went back to her maiden name
Advertisements [?]
normally that isn't an issue for a political board but her husband is Arabic and she is sick of the government hassle that her name causes her. Her husband is Iraqi but they can't write or call their relatives in Iraq due to our government forbidding it (since 1991). We should be ashamed of this. She has had FBI agents at her house and all the rest. Now she is going by her maiden name. Let's hope it helps.
