Via Owen, Mike McGee, Jr. now says that the problem is that he wants a passport. But his birth certificate (that he does not have) lists his name as Michael Jackson (to whom he cannot be connected). The reason, he says, is that his father was adopted after Junior was born and after he returned from Viet Nam. He can't get a passport because the birth certificate (which he must have just found!) does not match his name.
Could be. You can get a passport without a birth certificate but there are some extra hoops to go through. It also could be that McGee Sr. was adopted after a tour of duty in Viet Nam. It's never too late.
Take me, for example. I really admire Warren Buffet. Once I called his former daughter-in-law, Mary, as a witness at an arbitration. She thought I was nice. I think I'd make a fine Buffet.
