 Bob Ringwald adds:

I can personally attest to that.  My daughter Molly Ringwald has had things
written about her in the press for some 27 years.  The facts have ranged
from being 100% correct to complete and utter fabrication.

It was once reported in the New York Post that she was dating John John
Kennedy and that neither John's sister nor Mother approved.

At that time, Molly had not only ever met John Jr., she had never even ever
been in the same room as he.

Sounds as if Steve Beiderbecke was really taken in by a ruthless reporter.

Does anyone have Mr. Beiderbecke's e-mail address?  I'd like to write to
