"Last Word On The Old Fake Divorce Deal"

Misty said this to me: 
"Don't try to be nice. It doesn't become you." 
She's a joker. 

Barry McCloud called me today. 
He's author/editor of "The Definitive Encyclopedia Of Country Music", 
the 1997 book that said Misty and I were divorced. 
We weren't. 

He called to express his amazement that we are still complaining about it, 
and to urge me to write that in the 1999 CD-ROM edition, 
the mistake was corrected. 

We haven't seen the CD-ROM version, 
and weren't aware of it. 

As he said, 
"In an 1,170 page book, I'd have to be an angel not to have made one mistake". 
We never thought it was intentional, 
but it continues to have its impact on us anyway. 
I hope Barry understands this. 

The reason we still complain is because it never stops popping up. 
Barry got the false information somewhere else, 
and other writers use his 1997 edition as reference. 
It's still in the libraries. 

None of us can make it stop, 
so we'll keep on trying to correct each new one that comes along. 
We can't cure the disease, 
so we'll work on the symptoms. 

I told Barry McCloud that we would send out this explanation, 
and post it on our web site. 
We also thank him for the later correction. 
What more could he do? 

I think I'm very nice.
