A coupla years ago Carrol asked why April is any crueller than any other month. I thought about this for a long time but had no sensible ideas. No one else said anything neither. Now I see it can at least be put to a vote. So I guess it is just one of those things everyone knows- well at least 70% odd. Interesting the March and May figures- concern falls off quick don't it.
