sweettea (love that username!),

The new VC will help the space problem. The money problem is system-wide and not unique to GB. Staffing is also a system-wide problem. The good thing is that the staff that GB does have are top-notch, highly admirable people who care about the artifacts as much as we do.

As for Jackson's raincoat, since everyplace I can find says it is the raincoat worn when he was wounded, perhaps sources should be cited that it's not. That would certainly be more helpful than just telling people to "read the facts".

Joe , telling this group to read the facts is a laugh considering the libraries most of the members on line in this group have and the number of books that they have read.    As I have said before there is such a wealth of knowledge on this board. 

I also agree when you state something you should back it up with a cited reference .  I am a footnote reader.  Learn so much from footnotes. 

On this issue I would think VMI would know what raincoat they have. 

Take care.



I love the screen name Sweetea too.  Of course I do like the name Sweet since I have had it a long time.  Welcome Sweetea.
