    HP, does this pic of Hornung remind you of anyone? I always read your website from oldest post forward… iow, I scroll up-page from the post I read the last time I visited.

    Scrolling up, the pic of Hornung comes into view (mind you, I can’t see the header), and I’m thinking, why is Matt Barkley on a retro-cover of a mag…oh wait its SI…still, why is MB on…..

    Resemblance is uncanny, (as I contribute to the overuse of that stupid cliche).
