While it is nice to see Bob giving some good people the credit they deserve,
it would be nicer if their names were spelled correctly (see below).  Aren't
professional journalists supposed to check on things like that?  

[Or is that one of those questions that reveals how old I am? ;-)]

I especially like the way that the list "Butler Lampson, Chuck Thacker,..."
was apparently misheard as "Butler Lamps and Chuck Thacker."
