"Amazing how people keep rediscovering stuff that was old hat years ago. Seems like if you don't make a fuss about what you've found, all you're doing is leaving a headline for someone else to grab.
"And will someone please tell the schmuck who wrote the story that Tunstall and McSween indubitably met and more than probably ate at Herlow's Hotel, not the Exchange. That information was in my biography of JHT [John Henry Tunstall] published over fifty years ago.
Yes, it seems as if each generation (mine included) rediscovers something that has been dug up multiple times and says, "Wow! Look what I found!"
