The press release put out by Nottage’s family last week has wandered through the internet like a virulent digital contagion. From Business First of Buffalo to the Earth Times, the Houston Chronicle to the Los Angeles Times, Soapdom.com to Inbox Robot, Reuters to Marketwatch, Maynard Nottage is pretty much everywhere in America’s digital collective consciousness. I found at least eighty different links to the press release on the web.
There is still no response from the Times, however. Perhaps that’s because they failed to even report the conversation they had with Nottage’s great-grandson, whose disgruntlement with this treatment lead to the press release.
Also, reports of interest in a film of Nottage’s life are still spreading too, as this link to a French website shows.
