A nine-page paragraph must be something of a record, Alex. Mind you, if you re-read that first huge par of Twain's in The War Prayer, you'll notice that most of it is taken up with a single sentence! My pipe-smoking Brother of the Briar was on one heck of a roll with this one. Beautiful stuff, though. You can imagine a split-screen shot in a movie of two sides in a bloody war, on their knees, hands clasped, eyed turned heavenward, and praying to the same god for the same thing (one, therefore, denying the other) and the director being considered some kind o' nut ... Best. Neil
