They do indeed! Yet another euroclone conIAL :=(
Is that the 423rd? Or have I miscounted somewhere along the line?
They're fun enough to produce in odd moments; I used to churn them out
by the dozen in my teens (and even took some seriously). But with
where supply vastly outnumbers demand, one wonders what prompts people
still to add more to the number.
But to be fair to Paul Mitrovich, I note the year is 1947 (when in Britain
around till March and was followed by a glorious summer the like of which
rarely seen since - I was a lad of 8 at the time) - just two years after
WWII and in
a part of Europe badly affected by that war. One can well understand his
