Sorry, Michiel, but you're wrong. The "O'Gilt" name is used twice in
Lo$ 8. Both on a sign on the wall in the Blackjack Saloon ("Goldie O'Gilt

There'll soon be a lot of wealth flowing into Dawson!").
Heh, I'm a nitpicker, I know, but I came across this and thought "hey,
wait a minute, didn't someone say on the list a while ago that this name
only appeared in a newspaper clip?" :-)
