A John Doe has surfaced in Manhattan, and he's not a protected witness, an unidentified corpse or a celebrity checking into a seedy hotel. He's a 40-year-old computer programmer who lives on the Upper West Side.
John Doe, who came to the United States from Korea over 30 years ago, was born Jang Do but decided to change his name to be more American. Not knowing the history of the John Doe moniker, he legally switched his first name to John at age 11. Then, fearing mispronunciation of the surname "Do" by classmates, he convinced his parents to change their last name to Doe
