RE: "You Know Best, Captain" Talk by Dave Taylor
I'm glad you all liked the speech. As I said on my site, such a speech would not have been possible if it weren't for the research and work that has come before. I am especially indebted to the scholarship and kindness of Betty Ownsbey, Kate Clifford-Larson, and Dr. Blaine Houmes.

And, to answer your question, Laurie, no, I did not actually receive the removed John Wilkes Booth statue. Apparently you are not the only one who fell victim to my lack of comedic timing. I received an email a week after the speech that said one of the volunteers who attended the program was telling some others who had not attended that I really did have the Booth statue. The head of volunteer services had to reiterate that I was joking. None of you have to worry, however. Even if I had been offered that Booth statue, I would have turned it down because it looks nothing like him.
