    Dear Rick,=20

    here's a funny Tom K offline remark (hope you don't mind my making =
it public, old chap):

    Something Rick Seddon wrote caught my eye:

    <<That Gunnar and Tom like each other and know T. S. Eliot extremely =
well.=20
    That Steve and Rick P are both convinced that TSE was gay (just =
joking, just joking).>>

    I appreciate Rick S's kudos.  I wonder, though, if this =
juxtaposition might drag us into an analysis by Rick P's great-grandson, =
in his thesis on "Sexual Orientation of TS Eliot List Members at the =
Turn of the Last Century."
    If he's content with evidence such as appears in "Painted Shadow," =
he could create a tale that  would shock our wives in their dottering, =
aged-140+ retirements.


    What a sneaky way to point out that we're married, eh?
    It don't mean a thing!
    Remember what  Woody Allen said about the merits of being bisexual: =
You double your chances for a date on Saturday night.

    Cheers,


    Gunnar
