>>> I'm curious: are Duck fans also sci-fi fans? Or is it just a few of us?

>>Well, there's at least two of us. The question has popped up before,
>>so I guess there are even more.

Number three here! I don't know Heinlein.
But I do know & greatly appreciate Asimov, Crichton, H.G. Wells.
And Don Rosa ("The Universal Solvent", ...)

>>And, since I'm the spelling nit-picker here: I found only two typos:
>>"Louisina", and "Guinea" (should be "Guyana").
>>[I hope I don't spoil any surprises with this sentence.]
No, not "nit-picker"; "guardian" or something-- in the "Guardians of  the
Lost Library" sense.
Surely there must be a merit badge in "typo-tracking" & "language
integrity preservation". Lemme check. Yep, there is:
(Special Lexis & Language Mastery Enforcing Ranger)!   ; )

Thanks. I can't explain the "Guyana" one. I'll upload the correction ASAP.
No spoiling. I think the (very easy) treasure hunt is over.
For those who haven't seen it yet, the fourth feature of  the DRP (on M&D:
http://ob7.free.fr/mouse_ducks/ ) is indeed a map of  young Scrooge's
adventures throughout the world, as told in Don Rosa's L&T.

A couple more things should be added-- ASAP again:
    - StLouis
    - the village of  the Indians which gave the totem-- any idea as to its location?
      Scrooge says "up North" or something in "Black Wednesday". I don't think
      it's near the land of  Peeweegahs, though. I'd rather place it farther west.
      Would that be correct?
