WAR WITH IRAQ | IN BRIEF / AND FINALLY ...

What's in a Nom? Beaucoup, if It's Bush

March 29, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Eric Bush, a Briton living in Jonquieres, France, took a dramatic step to protest the war in Iraq -- he changed his name. The retiree, 72, said he was "ashamed" to bear the same surname as President Bush. He officially changed it to Buisson, French for "bush." He supported the 1991 Persian Gulf War because the United Nations did, he said, but "this time, Bush is outside the law."
