        726,000 google hits for Walter
        1,050,000 hits for Wally

        I actually checked that this morning and never got around to posting and the numbers this morning were around 550,000 and 800,000.

          Allow me to suggest that i one had googled pre-death the Walter count would have been far lower. As in, many "formal" obits entered the realm (or the same obit in 322,000 different hometown newspapers)
