SIDEBAR: I was in the Chicago, Illinois Cook County Court house, the Daley Center today. I was filing some pleadings as I do every day, for many years. I was standing next to the self filing stamping device. When a clerk approached me. She looked at some of my pleadings, as I was stamping them, and throwing them into a box.
She said, "Are you the Plaintiff?"
I said, "Yes."
She said, "YOU'RE LEO STOLLER!"
I said,"Yes I am Leo Stoller."
She looked shocked, staired at me for a minute, than walked away. When the Clerk said my name it sounded more like she was talking about a "brand" rather than a real person's name. As if the name LEO STOLLER was really a "brand" rather than the name of a live person.
