Does anyone have any info/anecdotes about J. Stewart Smith? I only know of him through those strange little card magic books he wrote and I'd love to hear any tales about seeing him actually present the stuff, particularly if he used the same lines he wrote in his books...which come across as mighty damn peculiar. The only story I ever heard was from Paul Diamond, who told me Smith--who was from Louisiana--used to do an oil and water routine during the heyday of the civil rights movement when busing was a heated topic there in the deep south. Oh yeah, and is the guy still alive?
