Edmund Burke (1729-1797):

Because half-a-dozen grasshoppers under
a fern make the field ring with their
importunate chink, whilst thousands of great
cattle, reposed beneath the shadow of the
British oak, chew the cud and are silent, pray
do not imagine that those who make the
noise are the only inhabitants of the field; that
of course they are many in number; or that,
after all, they are other than the little shrivelled,
meagre, hopping, though loud and
troublesome insects of the hour.

Richard Hills:

I am extremely gratified that cud-chewing
blml activists and lurkers who enjoy my posts
greatly outnumber "the little shrivelled,
meagre, hopping, though loud and
troublesome insects of the hour" who detest
my posts.

Therefore I will resume full blml membership.

Best wishes,

Richard Hills
DIAC Social Club movies coordinator

Doctor Frankenstein:

My operation, Igor, is the Jacoby Transfer
which requires two hearts. Voila! An insect
has gained Richard Hills' humorous heart,
while Richard Hills now has the humourless
heart of an insect.

Richard "grasshopper" Hills:

Tony Musgrove's paragraph above is a
slander on me, so I demand an immediate
retraction and apology. :-) :-)
