I was going thru that list and had to check about a half dozen of them that I thought were dead. Joseph Wambaugh I thought had died simply about 20 years ago because he put out a bunch of police books in the 70's and early 80's then pretty much disappeared. I didn't realize he was in his mid 30's when he first started publishing his best sellers, I thought he was in his 50's at the time and brought a lifetime of experience as a cop to his writing.

I didn't realize Wavy Gravy was still with us. I met Wavy about 20 years ago when I was living in Detroit and he was visiting the local mall selling ties for the Jerry Garcia tie company. I didn't buy a tie but I did get an autographed picture, which is buried in my storage building someplace.

Thanks for the compliment and the suggestions. Here are a few
impressions off the top of my head.

John Conyers - definitely

John Dingell, Orrin Hatch - ditto

Ernest Angley, Kenneth Copeland - intriguing

Honor Blackman - I've gotten a lot of past requests to add her, but
haven't yet

Betty Lynn - ditto

Dyan Cannon - can't believe I don't already have her

Steve Ditko - hmm ... I have a bias AGAINST MARVEL

Ethel Kennedy - no, this list isn't for other people's spouses,
children, parents, etc. ESPECIALLY Kennedys

Jean Kennedy Smith - ditto

Karl Lagerfeld - already on my list

Carol Lawrence - ditto

Desmond Morris - yeah, probably

George Takei - I have to fix his DOB in my data base, but yes

This list of impressions off the top of my head is not comprehensive,
nor is it intended to be.

Steve Ditko - hmm ... I have a bias AGAINST MARVEL
He's worked for just about everybody over the decades. Please don't
hold it against him.

I was particularly fond of his work for Charlton Comics in the 1960s.

My list was done in a format reflecting David Carson's original. Hence, the compression of facts.

One day, such a listing will encompass Ditko's other work at DC, Charlton, et. al. That will occur as soon as Hollywood makes a successful big-budget movie out of Captain Atom, The Question, The Creeper, The Hawk and the Dove, or Shade the Changing Man.

David doesn't seem to think much of classical musicians, but off the
top of my head I think Zubin Mehta (81), Alfred Brendel (86), Paul
Badura-Skoda (90), Vladimir Ashkenazy (80) and Nana Mouskouri (83) are
all pretty notable even to the general public. Badura-Skoda, maybe
not so much, but he ought to be.

Ed Ames wa on the original David Carson litany. He’s easy to find … only names in.
I guessed you missed him … just like Ed Ames with his tomahawk.
BTW, check out my latest posting titled “MEFA-LIST” in which I combined Carson’s list with all the supplements. There’s like 800-900 names thereupon.
