Odd Coincidence, or Strange Truth?

OK, we all know there are some rather odd coincidences in life. However, some are odder than others, and some turn out to be strange truths. Imagine the coincidence of finding someone with the exact same name as Judge Lawrence G. McDade of Atomic Safety and Licensing Board fame out on the internet. Even odder, this identical namesake individual happens to be involved in the rather SHADY business of horse racing! You know, gambling, doping, and tracks begging for on site slots. Could you imagine how strange the truth would be if Lawrence G. McDade of the horse racing world were to be one and the same with Lawrence G. McDade of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board, formerly with the Department of Justice? We may never know if they are horses of a different color, but does make for some interesting speculation.
