Cardinal Sin

In April 1976, Pope Paul VI named Monsignor Jaime L. Sin, Archbishop of Manila, as a new cardinal, thereby making him Cardinal Sin. From wikipedia:

His title and surname as Cardinal Sin (another term for a deadly sin) were a point of humour in the Philippines and for Filipino Catholics. Examples included "The greatest sin of all: Cardinal Sin," and even his own pun of "Welcome to the house of Sin" that he used to greet guests at Villa San Miguel, the Archbishop's palace in Mandaluyong.

My daughter went to school with a boy named Justin Case. Last I heard (20+ years ago), he was selling insurance.

There was a boy in my sisters class named Warren Peace. He did not join the army.

Then there's Bill Lear's daughter, Shanda. Bill was an engineer who developed the jet that bears his name and the 8-track tape audio system, if anyone remembers that.

The town where I grew up had a Doctor Doctor. Also, there was a dentist named Dr. Sheen. I went to school there with the Starr girls: Susan, Sandy, and Twinkle.

Virtual -- on the theme of appropriately named dentists, see the previous posts about the San Francisco dentist Dr. Rodney Pain:

Hmmm. I think I would have to go with Dr. Sheen over Dr. Pain. Adding the aural pain of the bagpipes to the oral pain doesn't seem so inviting.
