I'm always amazed at how many Bob Edwards there are out there - seems
to be quite a popular combination. I'm also quite amazed at how many
people share the same birthday as me (easily twice as many as the next
most popular date in my birthdays reminder app.).

I am just dreading the intersection of the two - finding another Bob
Edwards with the same birthday - a likely case of some identity
confusion/possible fraud!

This one (above) is probably the US media identity Bob Edwards.
