No.  It's a tactical decision. But, I tend to be sceptical 
of the belief that reference to McFadden winning the Bank of Sweden 
prize will help sell copies of the book, but you never know.
[btw, McFadden may not like his name being used in that context {i.e. in 
a book on 9/11}, but you would know better about that than I.]
In solidarity, Jerry
