Ok, so my parents were down at my sister's house in Georgia and they were looking at this book, Fear in Algeria. They read the back of the book and saw that the author taught at... get this... West Side Elementary School, Elkhart Indiana. The author lives in Goshen.

Crazy, huh?

Crazier still, I clicked on the book and put it on my, "to-read" list and when it comes up, there's a second author listed. That author's name is... James Converse.

So, I thought to myself... Converse isn't all THAT common of a last name. And to have more than one James Converse in this area... strange... and two separate generations... So Jimmy, here's the question: Are you related?

Or, what if Jimmy is actually like... 100 years old, and he's written several books - and he's going back to school in order to research the book he's currently writing...

Is THAT the case Jimmy?
