Does Ides of March worry modern Julius Caesar? Not really, he says.

A modern-day man from western Germany, whose legal name is Cajus Julius Caesar, says people want to know what kind of precautions he takes on the "Ides of March".

The original Gaius Julius Caesar was assassinated on March 15, 44 BCE. The modern Caesar happens also to be a politician, but says he's not unduly worried about this special day. In fact, he says the name is helpful in keeping him in the mind of the electorate — but occasionally causes problems when public officials and clerks refuse to believe it's his real name.
