Subject: (urth) Two FLF details

I carelessly deleted a post that mentioned Linda Loring.  She's a
character in at least two of Raymond Chandler's novels--Philip
Marlowe is in love with her.  Robert Mitchum played Marlowe in
_The Big Sleep_ and _Farewell, My Lovely_, but Linda Loring isn't
in those movies.

The IMDB appears to search only for real people, not characters.

Also, Unnamed City has a TV station called WROM (in Stubbs' 
questioning of Mrs. Baker).  The only TV station by that name that
I could find is or more likely was in Rome, Georgia--which can't be
the setting of FLF, at least in our universe.  Maybe a reference
to a Rome that's more important to Wolfe?
