  1. Hi...just thought I'd mention that the book Metropolis by Elizabeth Gaffney might be of interest to you. The Whyos play a big part in this fictional story.

  2. I read Herbert Asbury's book and I was always curious about Baboon Connolly. Strangely, he resembles a friend of mine who is a Buddhist and teaches yoga. I remember that Connolly was one of the key figures in the big shoot-out at The Morgue. Does anyone know anything about him and what happened to him?
