Little miss in bed now. She had a great time and way too many presents. The cake was rather good if not a bit on the rich side! Okay here goes, I hope this is easy enough to follow all right. (I'm sure I've missed some - I usually do a few read throughs to pick up everything - I hope this is useful for now. Let's get these done and I'll go over it again in a couple of days).
Indonesia: – “…revel airstrip…” should read “…rebel airstrip….”
1st para, 2nd line
“…amny fine trysting places…” should read “…many fine…”
11th para (beginning “And so the modern personification…”) 1st line
“…reamined on for almost six months…” should read “…remained on…”
Technical Areas (first grey quote box)
2nd para, 1st line
“…just borth of Mercury… “ should read “…north of…”
“ad” should read “and”
“confuced” should read “confused”
“materiel” should read “material”
Beginning of 3rd para
Yucca Flat, a… - underline continues too far (yeah, I know, so what - but pedantry’s the name of the game!!!)
And again three lines later with Rainer Mesa (the underline is taking in the spaces either side)
5th para (beginning “Two additional testing…”, 4th line
Just a style thing really but I would remove the apostrophes from 1950s and 1960s
And again with 1950s in the last line of that para
Probably me being witless, but I wasn’t really understanding the bit in your note about today's salary gap when you say “… assessing their taxes or doubt”
Under 8th subheader after the list in grey quote box
3rd para, 2nd line
“…far-randing…” should read “…far-ranging…”
Two sections later – Television Broadcasts
Should that start “Unquestionably” ?
In the appendix for Chapter 8
L + 2 hour, last line
“…cleared for secret, of course” should that be “secrecy” – not sure but it reads oddly.
Second section – Leased Phone Connections
Again a style thing really – but I’d remove the space before the colon
The p 320 quote needs a space after the question mark towards end of first line.
3rd subhead – Apollo as a Disaster…
Think the quote should start “The state’s power lies…” (lose “The hear of”)
4th para up from end of Chapter 11 beginning “In 1965, the Air Force…”
end of 3rd line
“Had this been down…” should read “done”
In section titled The Doctor of Minneapolis
2nd line there’s a space before a colon
Additional Facts as of 11-29-76
1st line Barron Report should be Baron Report
(Interesting aside: the Barron Report by Justice Henry Barron confirmed British collusion in 1974’s Dublin and Monaghan bombings)
5th para Barron v Baron again.
Oh and just in your last comment you’ve missed an “it”, 3rd line “…when you think about…”
Back to Chapter 2 - I don’t think the term lily-white is archaic – I use it. (Haha, perhaps I am too then!)
The 3rd usage below is a bit shudder – never seen that before - maybe that’s why it’s not used so much as a term in the States in these days:
(should be hyphenated, I think)
white as a lily: soft lily-white skin.
pure; untouched by corruption or imperfection; above reproach: He tries to pass himself off as some sort of lily-white saint, but he's not.
designating or pertaining to any faction, organization, or group opposing the inclusion of blacks, especially in political or social life.
