I don't have any verification on this, but it's a well known family story, passed on from father to son for one generation. My father claimed to hold the U.S. Army record during World War II for the largest number of responses to a Rorschach test.

And I suppose that roots generate a certain amount of respectability. At the least, I know where I'm coming from. One of my favorite early columns was, after all, only two sentences long, but had a link on almost every other word.
