Just an afterthought on this firm-

AUTHOR: T - (U.S.A.)

While the mailing address for this firm is indeed 'Kennesaw, Ga.' it is in fact not inside the city limits but is in unincorporated Cobb County, (a few miles NW of Atlanta) located in a business park.

Kennesaw is better known for the 'great locomotice chase' which started here at 'Big Shanty' and the engine is still on display in a newly redone museum here.

It is a damn shame that this bunch of crooks have a 'Kennesaw' address as it gives a sleepy little city a bad name across the whole country, but at least it is going out of business.
