    There was a book published by a Dandy about the whole tournament a few years back, that I have on my kindle, but deals specifically with the Dons. Also looks at the political situation as it was in the US at the time, and also the Summer of Love.

    great read

    I know, I know. I have a superior product somewhere on my PC.

    I don't get the September 6 reference either.

    Maybe, and I'm going out on a limb here, 57V is a tad bitter as he penned a, some would say "markedly", superior tome on the subject called (as I recall) "Numbers on the front" which failed to find a publisher.
