Reminds me he quoted Doc Humes suggestion of running "Exodus"

Now Doc was a piece of work (this also reminds me I lent my copy of
"Underground City" to someone & can't exactly remember who...)

Wasn't there a a Doc doc by his daughter a few years ago ? Wonder if
it was finished & will ever be on DVD...
