    From what I remember, there was never any reconciliation, and I read profiles at the time that claimed John D. was irritated because many critics had a higher regard for Ross's work than for his own. As far as I know, Ross's feistiness with John D. was tied entirely to the name issue. He was forced to stop using John R. and go to Ross, and he didn't like it.
