(I search in vain, however, for Claude Balls, author of The Tiger’s Revenge.)

    heh heh.

  2. Oral Vest, here in Portland.

  3. Lived quite close to a certain C. Wright, Optician.

  4. One of my Korean students chose her English name as Easy. To top it off, she is really hot! When I finally got around to telling her the connotations of her name, she turned every shade of red under the book.

  6. Ha!
