Vanity Searches:
Steve Outing, in Poynter's E-Media Tidbits, came up with the perfect use of's new book text search engine. Put in your own name and see what books you're mentioned in. I found three. Although I know there are several more, these are biggies:
In All the President's Men by Woodward and Bernstein:
(credits) ". . . Jr., Lawrence Meyer, Larry Fox, Bill Brady, Douglas Feaver, Elisabeth Donovan, Philip Geyelin, Meg Greenfield, Roger Wilkins and Maureen Joyce. . . ."
In The Miami Herald Report: Democracy Held Hostage:
". . . the ballot review and other reporting efforts. Herald research editor Elisabeth L. Donovan and reporter Daniel A. Grech rate special mention. Also, mention . . ."
In Carl Hiaasen's Team Rodent:
". . . Acknowledgments For their assistance I am indebted to the intrepid Liz Donovan and the daring Jennifer Dienst. . . ."
(Now you can have proof; not to mention a great research tool.)
