Web searches redux

OK. Suppose just suppose that you were doing a Yahoo! search for /hitchock dropleaf end table/ and came up with a bucket of hits.

Fifty-eight, to be exact.

Hit #37 is précis'd something like this:

Towse: 09/01/2004 - 09/30/2004
... Chief, Herb Caen, Emperor Norton and Lillie Hitchcock Coit on board ... patience for sitting at the end of a telephone line listening ... Put a skinny little dropleaf table between them ...

If you were looking for something on Hitchock dropleaf end tables, would you spare time to click through to see if by chance I had something interesting to say on the subject?

Bless those serendipitous readers anyway. Without them, my readership would drop to ... fifteen or so.

Hope you find what you're looking for.
