Rumor has it that Gene Heskett may have mentioned these words:

That's the rumor, but:

1) William Barden is an *awfully* common name... One of my "more inane" 
Google searches brought up a reference from the 1660ish (A marriage... )

2) I seem to remember finding his website quite a while back. I'm not sure 
if I bookmarked it, but anyone who's sane has no business looking in my 
bookmark file... ;-)

However, I can't seem to find the website now... :-/

IIRC, he's living in the Southwestern US (Think: Desert - either Arizona or 
New Mexico) and has a son... aptly named William Barden.

If my memory serves (which it usually doesn't - when's MRAM going to become 
brain-compatible? I could *sure* use an upgrade... ;-) there's a quote 
about Mark Twain & demise rumors... this may very well fall into the same 

The only other post I could find before giving up is:
