RE: [Histonet] Big Chief tablet?

For the youngsters out there----------------

 The Big Chief tablet was a popular writing notebook for several
generations of young children in the United States. It featured widely
spaced lines, easier to write in for those learning to write. Its
prominence, though, was the cover's representation of a native American
in full headdress, hence "Big Chief."

I had to testify in court once for a murder trial about the lab's chain
of custody protocol. Yes, I was nervous but it was very interesting.
And, I guess the manner in which we received medical-legal specimens and
stored them in a locked cabinet satisfied the lawyers and the jury. The
victim came to the ER barely alive and the bullets were removed and
received in the lab under the name of John Doe and then he died just as
he was being identified. So later it was questioned how we knew that the
bullets that I had in the lab actually came from the dead person
formerly known as John Doe. That was easy and I really didn't have to
explain anything about histology.
I thought it was interesting that the defense lawyer took notes on a Big
Chief tablet! (Younger people, you probably don't know what this is).
