Maybe we can create another link off of the General section of the AikiWiki for "Anecdotes about the founder"?
Sounds pretty good, I'm not too up on the legal issues but I'm sure that the authors of the books would probably say yes if asked, its a bit trickier in the case of deceased authors such as Shioda.
The general section would seem the best place to put it. I know that stories like that about O Sensei are often told and can be quite inspiring, unfortunately they often get distorted.
