Phil Donohue! Thank you so much. That's the guy, now I remember.
Actually it feels good, it feels gratifying. And *my* God doesn't consider
us mere mortals.

"...What you have to understand, young lady, is that the Greeks, not
content with dominating the culture of the Classical world, are also
responsible for the greatest, some would say the only, work of true
creative imagination produced this century as well. I refer of course to
the Greek ferry timetables. A work of the sublimest fiction. Anyone who
has travelled the Aegean will confirm this..." Professor Watkin - Dirk
