LOL! You were right about that! To be honest I can't really claim much credit for the Prouty business. It had already been raised on a.r.s. some years before I wrote RTWH; most of what I wrote on Prouty is cribbed from that. There does seem to be a lot more info available on Prouty now, though, thanks to Google Books so I will probably go into more detail on his background. I gather he was involved in some rather nasty far-right and anti-semitic circles. Does the Liberty Lobby ring any bells? I don't know much about it so will have to research it a bit further.
