Right Marc.

Funny to imagine that a professional historian sitting in his office at
a research university needs to "eschew" web sites.  This review is
merely typical and accessible to those on the LUG.  Coogan has *no*
credibility as an historian, and I am happy to provide a number of
references that will require those who have no access to First Search or
JSTORE to examine the appropriate paper references.

Teach your grandmother to suck eggs, Marc.  I giggle when you presume to
lecture us on "established" scholarship.

Again, Seth and Chandos, I recommend that you eschew web sites and go
established scholarship.  Read Tim Pat Coogan, for starters, and then
out the historiographical work put out on Collins five or ten years back
