Thanks; your new version makes sense!
I remember his "common sense test for potential spouses," which leaned very heavily on the potential spouse's knowledge of breeds of cattle, swine, etc. I guess the idea was to screen out all them dumb citykids. Sadly, I can't find an example online. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:27, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
I started contributing to the Crane page to poke fun at his nonsensical articles. In college in the early seventies, we'd look forward to the Wednesday paper to see what loony things he would say that week. It was a valuable life lesson - a PhD and MD were no predictor of logical thought. I have concluded that he started out as a sharp fellow, did some pioneering work in marriage compatibility and computer dating, and then toward his later years just flamed out.
