All right, I guess it's Trivia Hour.
Elliot Naess is now the name on my drivers license. But it's not what my parents called
me -- that was Steinar Næss. With my surname pronounced "ness", I picked up the
nickname Elliot after Eliot Ness, the Treasury Agent portrayed by Robert Stack in the
television series The Untouchables. After some years, I "gave up" and made it official.
That was black & white television, folks!
And yes, that's me (and a friend) in my avatar, crossing Humboldt Bay.
