Colin -

Can you clarify the term "Brentford Polonius"?

Is the "Brentford" the same "Brentford, England", which hosts
Trico Products - home of the dual-action wiper blade, and
perhaps John Rimmer's current hometown?

Could the "Polonius" be related to the Polonius who was unable
to master the "soul of wit" in his limbs and outward flourishes
of much unnecessary, although mildly amusing - amusing, that is,
if you're in the mood for it (although some are often not) -
 tediousness? Or even, "ordinariness"?

Also, what did you mean by a "McCarthyist coffin-donkey"? One
who mindlessly pulls someone to his funeral - deserved or not,
goaded by highly-placed government officials? You lost me on
that description.


Thank you, Colin.

And to all, Happy Thanksgiving/Ordinary-Thursdayness, as the
case may apply.

Thanksgiving gratefully sets in...
