barbara -- didn't we try to get a source out of him when we published in
tugboat?  if not, how was that issue produced?

anyway, it's somewhat pleasing (in a black humour sort of way) to learn
that he also ignores such luminaries as reinhard and karl.  people
regularly ignore what i ask, and it's good sometimes to find that i'm
not alone.

perhaps someone could redo the thing, somewhat more up-to-date, as a
publication  d'apr\`es keith reckdahl?  (i presume that's what the
french guys did.)
