Once again, then, we have a case of people using the Society as a primary 
source on the middle ages.  Much as we might like to crow about our 
accuracy, I doubt we deserve this status.

And if you think the authorities of the Society claim to the Government 
of the United States of America that we are a primary source for research 
of the Middle Ages, you have every excuse to be worried about our 
tax-exempt status.
