Subject: 1/3 Increase for Wind

I vaguely remember seeing some time ago a reference to a article entitled
something like "The Mythical 1/3 Increase".  I believe it questions the
validity of allowing a 1/3 increase for wind and possibly other loadings.

Can anyone provide the correct title and offer any suggestions on where I
might be able to get a copy of the article?
