...But he’s not known as “Ronald” either !
He’s known as “Donald” McDonald. The change was made because there is no “R” sound in Japanese. (No “L” sound, either !)

For some reason I was trying to think of someone older for the Scarecrow in "The Wiz!" I got the ones in red:

1. St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John
2. Michael Jackson
3. The Artful Dodger
4. Herbert Hoover
5. Ash Wednesday
6. The Untouchables
7. Poland
8. Mexico

CRAP !!

If I had thought about 3 seconds longer I might have gotten #s 4 and 6.
