A little late to the party...
Excellent job on the research.
On a personal note, I'm wondering how much of his church mission is true. I haven't read his book, but being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints myself, some of the pieces of his mission story don't seem correct. I know that the Church keeps records of missionaries, but I don't know if they will release them. I'll look into it and see if we can add another lie to the pile.
I would appreciate it, though you'll have to ask about him using the name David Diddley which he was using in the 1980s.
wow. This is the story that just keeps on giving.
