And another thing. Case was never a member of the Golden Daw, he was only 17 
when it disbanded. And he wasn't the head of anything to do with the GD.

Nothing wrong with a bit of honest self-promotion, but this is bordering on
the fantastic. Talk about building a legend.

BOTA, you sure have taken a nose-dive in respectability since I last saw
anything from you. Don't think I'll bother looking at any more.

The words disreputable and plonkers come to mind in no particular order.
