Asian names

Giving Oklahoma's own Sally Kern a run for her money is North Texas representative Betty Brown:
Brown suggested that Asian-Americans should find a way to make their names more accessible. “Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?” Brown said.
Betty is mixing up her Asians. Thai and Indian names are hard. Chinese and Vietnamese names are easy. For example, she made her statement during the testimony of someone named "Ramey Ko". Now, really ... how hard is that?
