A name so beautiful, they named a ham after it

ham.jpgVirginia really is a beautiful name. It evokes images of Shenandoah at dawn or the Blue Ridge on a late-summers day. And unfortunately, it also evokes guffaws and jitters over New York's premiere ham politician, C. Virginia Fields.

So what does the initial "C" stand for? We know ... and there's no shame in an equally fine first name (maybe we'll reveal it later).

But why does C. Virginia Fields not reveal her first name? In her conduct of public affiars, Ms. Fields is the master of misrepresentation, so this might be just another aspect of her character.
