The variety of posts is what I enjoy in this forum. Thanks for that link.
I was an avid Mad reader in my youth and was even an "EC member addict" with a membership card to prove it, and I still have several dozen issues from the 50s. I thought for sure I had issue 1 and the composition book issue, but the earliest I find now is issue 10, "The face on the bar room floor". I may still have an Alfred E. Neuman T shirt among my old running gear; guess I should look it up and wear it for riding since my running days are well behind me.
