LOL- the Laziest Man in Genealogy?

My erstwhile genea-friend, The Genealogue (Chris Dunham), has posted "The Laziest Man in Genealogy" (with not even a question mark!) saying:

"I must say I'm disappointed that Randy Seaver refuses to update Ancestry.com's 1930 U.S. census index to include the birthplaces of all the wives and children. He seems to be willing to do it for his relatives, but not for the millions of people who don't show up in his GEDCOM files. And he calls himself a "Geneaholic"..."

Typical Chris... he has, um, let's say, a unique view about things genealogical. Funny as hell, too. My response on Chris's post:

"LOL. This is payback for what, eh? Here I blog eight hours a day, try to find all of Ancestry.com's errors, give three presentations a week, and I get a ration for not correcting the errors in the census records of YOUR ancestors? And everybody else's!"

Made my night! Now I have a presentation to proofread, a handout to create, 20 more pages of the 1930 census to fix, and the CVGS newsletter to finish up. I spent too much time watching the damn Yankees game. I guess I'm the martyr of Chula Vista genealogy?

A martyr Huh? Well ok I can fit a martyr into my line-up of people and things I gotta say a prayer for. Just don't get any ideas about sainthood - my dance card for them is full!
