I have to agree with Yigal on this one.  I don't agree with a lot that Rainey has written, nor 
have I ever gotten to meet him, but he is definitely a "big name" in the field, and good 
scholarship requires at least intereracting with his material.  I suspect you were just in a 
hurry when you referred to him as "nobody."  That, he most certainly is not.
