    Dr. Deaton,

    Thanks for this episode of “Off the Deaton Path.” I especially enjoyed your coverage of actor Yaphet Kotto (and “Homicide: Life on the Street,” one of my favorite shows) and of Bernard Bailyn, one of that handful of historians that history graduate students had to read–and understand! And your coverage of Ty Seidful’s book on Lee was the icing on the cake, a work I had discovered earlier today and ordered.

    So, in sum, well done, at least in my opinion. . . .

    George Lamplugh
