Bill Barker.  So sorry to hear this. You were a really nice guy with an amazing mind. I'd ask you any question in World Past and Present and you'd always preface it with "I THINK that was called blahblahblah...", and, of course, you were never wrong. I have bragged to many people what a brilliant person you were. I was hoping to see you again some day. In the sweet by-and-by, I hope. You will be missed down here, Bub.  Rest in peace and God bless your family.  BH
