Clancy Ross, is somebody who the more I read, the more I see a serious thinking mind at work. It doesn't surprise me, but I think a people mis alot of good, solid info when they bypass what was done by the Golden age guys.
By the 1950's there was some good stuff happening in BB. Go look at what was being done, and study some of these guys and their thought process. you'll see serious well thought out programs, that still work to this day.
