I’ve been thinking, you really would expect everybody, finally,
to get David Bowie’s name correct.
A real shock, but so glad I went to his 1973 concert

But you’re all right now… as the old joke goes.
And so is
Linda Benninghof,
with
Gas, food, lodging, Patricia Griffin,
despite having to battle

The Wind from the West,and
Pat Farrington,
back From the Underworld.
There, she may well have encountered
That Man (Breda Spaight),
Pete Langley’s Airside Bagatelle Lady
or The Cern Archivist (Julian Turner).
No wonder
Sharon Black enquires Are My God So Different From Yours?
And thank goodness
Maurice Devitt provides a Beginner’s Guide to Escapology.
But if you do go
Astray with Clifton Redmond,
or end up feeling a bit
Lost, like Patrick Moran,
at least you’ll find something good to read in here, all 96 pages of it.
Although of course, as they always say,
and
Lavinia Kumar points out, It’s Not the Size
