There was a post here about Nate Liepzig and his performing backgroung way back in the 20's. There is a link to a biography site of about six pages. There in the site is a great description of how he went to a visiting performer's show, saw a bit about getting a telegram delivered... and promptly included the bit in his act.Originally posted by Bryan Lizotte:

...In your own mind you might well have rewritten the past so that you did the right thing, I still don't buy it.
I'd say it was your seemingly flippant attitude in the Ogawa/Exposure thread. Maybe it was only seemingly flippant.Originally posted by opie:

Johnathan you have a good point.Originally posted by Jonathan Townsend:
How are we going to do better if an attempt to TRY for better as a goal gets attacked. The ethical remains. The ad hominem distraction digression does little to help a cause of establishing a means of seeking assistance that includes the support of the SAM and IBM.
I agree 100% with Chance. :)Originally posted by WolfsMagic:
Unfortunatley, it still comes down to personal choice on all levels and that can be the hardest to influence.
Now you know why I'm so cranky.Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
Ditto for the Geoff Latta's name, who probably would've had it easier as a kid if his parents had named him "Jeff" so kids at school didn't call him "Goff" or "Geeooff" and crap like that.
Sorry, but that's a stretch, Richard.Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
Calling it "Fortune Cookie Surprise" is about the most obvious title one could find, so I certainly wouldn't be surprised if someone else thought of it.
Thanks Richard. I apologize for the extraneous matter ... and to Chance too. He is a fine creator of magic and I think I have held a grudge against him a bit too long.Originally posted by Richard Kaufman:
I've just cleaned up some of the extraneous matter in this thread between Chance Wolf and Andy Martin.
