Chuck Frederick and I have been emailing back and forth about the cannon for some weeks now. He’s gotten a little more information about it and is looking for more.
He’s also been tinkering with a column I submitted to the Trib which will be in tomorrow’s paper. I can live with the final product he sent me after I had a chance to make one tiny change to it. The Trib’s version is 80 words longer than the one I first submitted to them. They’re getting generous with their ink. I’ll link to it tomorrow if it does show up.
