Re: Darwin Lecture at University of KY 2-26-99

To anyone who is going to this:

    If you ever wondered what I look like (although I can't guarantee we've
stayed the same), Dr. Bruce MacFadden and I discovered at the 1986 SVP
meeting that we are nearly identical.  (We also both had moustaches and
parted our hair the same way at the time).

    Say hello to him from his Philadelphian duplicate,

            Allan Edels
