paulh. Trump's behavior is unpresidented

I used Ted Hughes' "Birthday letters" (released just months before his death in 1998)for my book discussion group. He was portrayed by Daniel Craig in the film "Sylvia" (Sylvia Plath, his late wife, was portrayed by Gwynneth Paltrow). Sylvia was somewhat unkindly described (though not by Hughes) as a blend of Medea and Emily Post. Hughes had an uphill battle against the perception that he was somehow responsible for Plath's death. I'm glad that the Guide has material on Hughes. On my side of the Atlantic, Plath is greater draw, though I wonder if any poets are read these days.

Operation Mincemeat would tie in with the new film adaptation, previously filmed as 'The Man Who Never Was' - and I assume that Americans at High School dance around this time of year, just before they throw smiley - prof hats in the air and sing Elgar's 'Land of Hope and Glory' for no apparent reason...

American high school graduates do NOT sing 'Land of Hope and Glory'. smiley - snork

They DO march into their stadia, gyms, or auditoria to the TUNE of what is known here as 'Pomp and Circumstance'. smiley - laugh Usually using the 'hesitation step' for better spacing and parental photography.

Dmitri is right. Or at least he's right about how things were done in the 1960s.

smiley - laugh I think at this point, we should move any further musical discussion elsewhere, as we were only talking about the h2g2 statistics.

Just in case I'll be avoiding cakes, especially if they're used as an alternative to ashtrays...
