This thread has ensured that anyone interested in this topic in 2005 won't give a single flying f*#k by the time any book is ever produced. This is the ultimate case example of killing your own market... but kudos on drawing it out for as long as possible.

If the book is ever published, I'll buy it. I don't believe it will ever be published. Licky's a researcher, not a writer.

If I was just a reader and not a witness, this whole thread is full of tall tales hardly believable. Oddly, there are many facts here. It's up to Licky to separate the bull from the facts. I'll say this: it was in fact an incredible event. When I tell the story as I know it in real time, fact, it's a pretty darn cool story. If you were part of it, you know what I'm talking about.

The article was plenty for me. It's a fun read, but nowhere near as much fun as the visceral impact one feels when hearing the story as oral history, a woven tapestry of vernaculars and viewpoints told in the idiolects of those who were there, from one campfire to the next, over the decades. It's the tiny details and asides and gestures and facial expressions and humor and giddy reflective amusement that the storytellers bring to life and that make the story worth listening too. I spent many weeks in the Valley that spring, so I heard the whole tale from quite a few people, and already the story was well along in it's evolution into mythology. In any event, having read the article I doubt I'd bother to read any book, should it someday appear. Unless, of course, it receives rave reviews and a write-up in The New York Times Review Of Books.

In other words, meh.

Bold proclamation, Werner. However, there's no chance of it becoming true.

I've promised Ric not to snow on his parade, but he assures me that all questions will be answered in a comprehensive book TBP.

Obligatory teaser/trailer

Chainsaw..I'll repeat myself. You have no clue and you are barking at shadows. The DOJ have been watching you for years and tell me you are bogus. Next?

Uh oh...am I tipping my hat Sidmo?
