I saw this "political correctness gone mad" story in my newspaper the other day, and then spotted it was about a guy called "Paul Hyde". All too similar to my name, I reckon! If you Google my name, the only other Paul Hider of some fame is a West Country goalkeeper. Mine's not the most common of surnames (especially spelled with an "i", rather than a "y"). My younger students do tend to have a good laugh though when we learn about "Hyde Park" in London ...so it all belongs to you? haha!... or when we do our lesson on "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" ...so you are an ugly monster! haha!...
