Second that, Mr. Bonine, thank you very much and sorry it took me so long. I just mailed in my $2.00 check for a copy from the BLM (we hear rumors, even in Santa Monica, that not everyone is happy with the way the BLM does things, but I appreciate their old-fashioned prices; I don't want to admit what I ended up paying to get a copy of G.C.McAlister's death certificate). Certainly never expected Warren G. Harding to pop up in this story. I'm sure such documents were put in front of him by the hundreds and he never gave a thought to what they actually said, but still, there he is...are you old enough to remember Jayne Mansfield? McAlister designed, in 1929, the house on Sunset Boulevard she and her body-builder husband later bought and turned into her Pink Palace, which means that Harding and Jayne are both part of the McAlister saga. If that isn't truly weird, I don't know what is.
