Man alive. This book is a long time in the making! It was in the fall of 1998 you posted the info below to 2400 and I've been licking my chops ever since.|
What has caused the delay?
BTW, I see you've finally fired up your website at: http://www.jefftamarkin.com/
Thanks, Jeff, and keep us posted.

Posted fall 1998 to Jefferson Family list (2400 Fulton):
Fellow Fultonites, I’ll have more to say about the following announcement shortly. I’m hoping I can count on list members to help out with fact-checking, dates, opinions, anecdotes and other contributions. I want this to be the definitive, most accurate and honest portrayal yet on these folks, and I know there is no better source than the collective knowledge found here tomake sure it turns out that way. Most of the band members are behind this and have agreed to support it and give me input, but I still need and want as much input as possible from everyone else. Thanks, and I’ll write more about it in the very near future.
PS—Please excuse the formal and basic tone of this press release. This is what’s getting sent out to the media and not all of them quite "get it."
