Wow -- what a fabulous post.
Sometimes, when I think I might be pretty sharp (or at least not a dull point), I see a post like yours and feel like I am Jethroe Bodine.
I have read it three times and and still am gleaning new information from the well-written and reasoned data posted.
Are you a historian and writer by profession?
"Are you a historian and writer by profession?"
But I've been told I should be.
For my own edification, to which post were you referring?
(Oh, and please, who is/was Jethro Bodine? Was he Jedd's son?)
