Having recently acquired Broadband I have just spent a morning trawling 
websites using as my search path "Bunk Johnson". Sadly, some of the most elaborate 
websites were the most inaccurate. One of the commonest errors was the various 
incorrect dates given for the Rayne fracas when Evan Thomas was murdered. 
Many others speak blithely of William Geary Johnson, and most accuse Bunk of 
never or rarely speaking the truth. In few sites do I detect any evidence of 
contact with anyone who actually knew Bunk. In general, my point is that websites 
are often given credibility they do not deserve by the incredulous believing 
that "technology" is fallible.
