Your message in this thread defended me rather effectively. And speaking of
"digging dirt using 10-year-old material", fortunately I have no public
material going to the age of 14. But, just like you, back in 2003, I
bothered to use my Palm with some keyboard to write a comprehensive bio,

Worth reading. It's not very long.
