Bagnall's books is a great source of info, but there are errors as well, 
some larger than others...  Mensch could have had rose colored glasses 
on the day I talked to him in 1995, but he didn't seem to think ill of 
Jack or CSG.

WDC was always an odd duck. They kept surviving on the 6502 and an archaic layout process by targeting embedded products.
And continue to survive.  They just came out with a 65C51, as I recall, 
not too terribly long ago.
