Hilarious Treatise on flying a year from now: Jan Baughman's Check Your Underwear
To the Editor:
If we combat WW2 fliers had to go through a fifth of the pain in the assism Jan describes, we'd have never made it aloft -- average mission length being 4 hours. Had we not bombed Deutschland there'd have been no need to rebuild it, and GM would never have had to suffer the indignity of bombing by BMW and VW... We coulda used the money for abortions or Medicare. Or body building gear so that our kids could grow up to become governors of states like Calleyfornear.
With admiration for such good seerage,

Isidor Saslav's Shaw In Chicago Again
To the Editor:
I recently read Isidor Saslav's fascinating essay "Shaw in Chicago Again" (August 2009), and would very much like to ask him one question, in particular, arising from his article: who adapted Shaw's The Shewing Up of Blanco Posnet into the two-act musical Blanco? He mentions attending a performance of the work in the 1970s.
