         You know what I think of your abilities. On this one, I
didn't even know Hunter had died 9 yrs. ago!  I am working on about
100 sports writers, 100 misellaneous sports & entertainment figures
all at once. When I stall on one, I move on to another. I done over
2,000 in the last 2 yrs. since I finally got a computer. It's taken me
over & I'm obsessed. You remind me of me. Can I ask you a question?
Are you a professional researcher? It's hard to imagine you coming
home after a hard day in a cubicle and doing all this productivity
in-between the dishes & housework. But I've digressed. You beyond my
ability to measure now. I have to now provide more details to you for

Hi bluestreak-ga,

Thank you for the praise--I really do appreciate it. We're really not
supposed to provide personal information about ourselves--I do know
that we researchers come from all over the world and have all kinds of
backgrounds and skills. And yes, I sort of do this type of work in my
career, GA is a good way for me to supplement my income. The kinds of
questions you've been posting are the kind I'm particularly good at.
You asked in the Griffith's question about sources. I have been using
a fair amount of print sources for your questions. That's where most
of this stuff is buried. In researching your questions I've found that
what you need is like a jigsaw puzzle scattered about. The trick is to
find one puzzle piece and then try to determine which piece will fit
next and where it is. Sometimes it's also a matter of knowing what
*type* of source to look at rather than needing to know the exact
source itself.
