A great interview of a true gentleman. Thanks for posting this David.

That was most enlightening . . . an interviewer informed about his subject, and a subject whose every word is worth our attention. Several tidbits were new to this listener,
and Mr Reisley (that's Rye-sley ?) nailed down a number of random statistics and facts that students of Usonia (that's Uson-ya, per Roland) will want to get right.

WRYZ-lee ... in deference to his sense of humor.

He's certainly "together"; he's 95 this year. Is Ronnie still with us ?

Ronnie Reisley died several years ago. I believe Roland has since remarried, but I haven't seen him since '02, so I won't say for sure.

He was kind enough to let the conference tour the house a couple years ago.

. . . or, Reisley, to rhyme with "wisely" . . .?
Usonia as a three-syllable rather than four-syllable word is a novelty for me. So is "Mist'right" as a pronunciation for Mr Wright---as we hear from Jack Howe
in the new Rob Barros film. I guess if you've uttered the name multiple times a day, and from quite a young age, some sort of elision could be expected. I
wonder how many other Taliesians [sic] did likewise; I feel like I've heard this before . . .
