Ungrateful Utah

Another blurb in the Salt Lake Tribune this morning:

Remember the story of Richard Udink, the Price resident whose request to put his last name on his license plate was denied by the Division of Motor Vehicles, which found the name offensive?
The Price Sun Advocate, in its special Veterans Day supplement, ran a picture of the five Udink brothers, including Richard, who served their country during World War II.
But their name still can’t be on a license plate.

Richard is my father’s name, though the Richard mentioned here is my great uncle–I already emailed a correction to the Trib, and also thanked them for keeping up with the story. Ironically, my great uncle Richard changed his last name to Udell about 18 years ago.
