From a reader:
It seems that every time I read one of your columns/blogs curiosity takes me to the land of the Looney Tunes. Since I was not real sure how Pinocchio father fit into you blog I Googled him and ended up finding the real cause of WWI. http://www.zayra.de/soulcom/america/blackbird2.html.
I was never really sure what caused that war but it turns out it was the results of the “dark fruits of the misunderstanding of the Battle of Kosovo” in 1389. Something I would never have known without you, the web, google and assorted whack jobs.
