    Mr. Greenstein was a famously kosher vegetarian, so......nah.

    I have an odd memento. Stirling Silliphant was friends with a buddy of mine. Silliphant was friends with The Atom. My name came up and my buddy told him I was a big fan of The Atom. Mister Silliphant gave my buddy a copy of a book to give to me - The Spiritual Journey of Joseph L. Greenstein: The Mighty Atom.....signed by Mister Silliphant, with a nice note to me.

    That book is due for reprinting, and hard to get...... I've got some nicely twisted horseshoes, and bent railroad spikes....:cool:123
