Of course, it works the other way around too. Steelworkers can retrain as dancers if they get a chance and they can entertain and educate many more people than any dance company.

But it would have given you a chance to describe some or all of a woman as dead-drop gorgeous.

C P Snow's "Two Cultures" divide lives on: a science venue is ineligible for the support offered to 'cultural' institutions:

[belatedly coming in to refute this prolonged calumny :evil: ]

The 'Cambridge' spy ring should properly have been called the 'Trinity' one (Burgess, Philby & (at the ring's centre) Blunt; Maclean was Trinity Hall). Alumni of my College, King's, were patriotic stalwarts of Bletchley Park (Turing the best known of several). :thumright:

Ironically, the pre- and post-war image of Trinity was 'right-wing' and of King's 'left-', partly because of the better known, politically active, academics at each. Made for good cover, I guess :roll:
