The Dan Rather and CBS News controversy is all over the newspapers these days, as well as on radio and television news. The story in USA Today and elsewhere cites a certain Lucy Ramirez. As the USA Today article states, "Burkett now maintains that the source of the papers was Lucy Ramirez, who he says phoned him from Houston in March to offer the documents. USA TODAY has been unable to locate Ramirez."
One of the new blogs that was created to cover this story has a link to a USGenWeb file: http://www.rathergate.com/index.php?p=167, which then points to http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/tx/midland/vitals/births/1948/midlab48.txt
However, as comments to the blog article show, the name Lucy Ramirez is a rather common name, with probably dozens of women of that name in Texas alone. So which Lucy is the cited one? Of course, that question assumes that there is a real cited one, which in itself is an interesting question.
The blog article is available at http://www.rathergate.com/index.php?p=167.
If anyone figures this out, please let me know. It is obvious that the various news outlets are all confused.
