    I have yet to read anything of yours that doesn't require me to look up something; this month's comp included. Neat.

    Top Comp entry, yours. Struggling with the homework. Read and read again, your Desert Island Disks and more impressed each time. Can't think of a reason to have the MC as a guest. 'Our guest here today has been directly linked to three political assassinations and implicated in at least three more. He has also been linked with the deaths of at least four Russian military advisors in Sierra Leone, please welcome.....' Somehow greatest 'hits' seems to carry more than one context....
