Larry,

Not sure why but the bottom of this article is real dark, and tough to read?

M.D. Not sure if this is the way the article appeared in the newspaper or the scan darkened it. I thought the copy that was legible was worthy of sharing.

Hell, I doubt Stuart knew on July 3rd how many effectives he had. My guess would be about 2500-3,000, no more.
