Ah, so this story should also contain such a meeting? This sounds like quite
a long story.

...did you even READ the quote I gave you?

...and from Caterina Mognato's point of view there may have been no reason
to follow whatever info is given in some story by Don Rosa. That doesn't
mean she (he?) is a lousy researcher. And it certainly doesn't mean that Don
Rosa is a better researcher than her (him?), as we _have_ seen so many
examples that Don Rosa totally ignores what people have written before him
simply because they're not written by Carl Barks. (I'm not saying Mognato is
a BETTER researcher than Rosa either - I don't know her (him?) good enough
to tell. But you can certainly not blame her (him?) for being worse than Don
Rosa based on something Don Rosa have done quite a lot of!)
