Ah, yes, that's what Arthur wrote.  I assumed that by having Irony Man
et al meet in 1985 that I might have invalidated some story that he
wrote so I didn't ask any questions.  I assumed, at the very least,
that he had a story in mind when he wrote that there were "stories"
which established the LNH starting in 1992.  But certainly the original
Cosmic Plot Device Caper and (worse) Lurk of Faith (because you do NOT
want to mess with Scavenger) established that the LNH had already been
around for years.  So, no, I didn't know what he was talking about but
I didn't call him up on it either.  Sorry.
