oh ha :P it reminds me of the bit in Stoppard's "the real inspector hound" when we hear a radio newsreader reporting on the recent escape of a dangerous criminal "the public is advised to stick together!"

my husband and good friends say that a major source of my grumpiness is that i overestimate the intelligence at work in x y or z and underestimate my own, i'm mostly oblivious to things like this so i don't usually have a frame of reference or become too cross - although the latter takes discipline of a kind in practise, on the net it's easy to avoid as a mysterious waste of time :P

35, plus A Dance to the Music of Time is a 12 novel sequence. A reread might be in order, because some of the things Powell does still fascinate me even at such a distance
