I am the one that posted the comment, not Warren, and the format was mine. I have no problem with the way Lost Memory has been posting and greatly enjoy and appreciate his efforts to share information with all of us. Let us all move forward and keep posting what pieces of information we find of interest on the subject of theater history. Thanks.
