[percy-l] Lonergan and Percy?

I'm curious if anyone has comment on recent flap regarding Bob Coles
quoting (misquoting?) Percy on Bruce Springsteen. Coles claims Percy was
a gushing fan of Springsteen's, as Coles is, and his quotes are taken
from memory. So he can't back them up. But quotes are being challenged
by New Republic magazine and by Percy's nephew, who says they don't
sound a thing like Walker. I agree. Quotes sound phony.

	Dear Rhonda,
	I don't ever recall Walker mentioning someone named Lonergan in
the book meetings. He would from time to time drop a word ot two about
other reading he was up to if he found it interesting, but this sparks
no blip of recognition on my screen. Marcus Smith might perhaps be a
better informant?
