Douglas writes to a fan also named Kirk explaining the origins of his name. "My original name was Issur. People called me Izzy - that rhymes with dizzy. I took the name Kirk years later, because I liked it. I still do. Young kids always find some excuse to tease someone...You must try to learn to ignore their jokes. If they think they're getting to you, they will keep it up. I will be your friend...." He signs in full then adds in a postscript, "Yes, I have gotten so mad that I wanted to punch somebody...on rare occasions it's not a bad idea." With transmittal envelope.
