Thanks for all the sleuthing, Jeneane. Here's a Google footnote - while Fishrush may have succumbed to the depths, the Five Fish list lives on in Google's cache. Also, Clay has a non-blog site where he demonstrates firmly he is a figment of no one's imagination.
P.S. How are you liking Blogger Pro? Less downtime, more features? Intravenous echinacea for no additional charge?
