    Dangle a tinned duck in front of a comrade and they always cross over.

    As Greta Garbo says in Ninotchka, we have the strong ideals, Paris has the lovely climate. Or words to that effect.

    Just to state that "textual relations" was made up by a journalist. But that journalist was not Lloyd Burr

    Dirty Politics is not too obvious, is it?
