Not to mention that "... Spider ..." can't be any earlier than '46, since
he wasn't on the air, During The War.

Way off topic:
Is anybody else getting comments rejected because they contain "unknown
commands"? Even quoting these "commands" - one of them a one-word
book-title in French - in a message asking about the problem caused UGA to
reject that message because it contained "unknown commands."

One comment had to do with someone being "brothers with" - like "friends
with" - someone's grandmother and the other was about the phrase, "got it
snaked" = "got it made."
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
