Interesting, thanks. More accurate & fair than I'd expected of Murray. But he misspelled Dick Souter's name, and I think he underestimated delegate's foreknowledge of both Ravenal & Ruwart. Ravenal had been prominent as adviser to previous LP presidential candidates, and his name had gotten prominent mention, so I think most knew of him, although the question we all had was, "Since when's he a libertarian?" And Mary Ruwart (technically a biophysicist rather than a biochemist, although less prominent, had gotten publicity for her activities in Mich. that would've been familiar to activists paying att'n nationwide.
