"Jesse" Name Back in The News

Posted: Jul 11, 2008 11:55 AM
After weeks and weeks of little news on the "Jesse" front, Jesse Ventura and Jesse Jackson both stormed back this week in a big way. 

Not since the 80s (when Jackson and Ventura were joined by Full House's "Uncle Jesse" and Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl") -- has the name been so hot.  Expect there to be an increase of babies named Jesse to show up nine months from now ...

Update:  Palm slaps forehead: readers remind me of the late Sen. Jesse Helms.  What are the odds that the three most important Jesses of recent decades would all hit the headlines in the same week?  Is there an astrological phenomenon occurring that I'm unaware of?  Perhaps Jerome Armstrong could weigh in here?"
