Subject: (urth) Borski's Lime Theory and all Date: Tue, 3 Sep 2002 09:58:51 -0500 Borski said: Bonus gratuity: although I don't belief this is true, in order to make your theory work, you might try arguing that "Lime" is short for "Limestone." Crush answers: Are you kidding?? Lime isn't short for anything!! It's calcium oxide. Limestone is calcium carbonate. This theory fits so well with my own (regarding Hyacinth), so in line with the way I read Wolfe's clues, and so unlikely to be coincidental that I'm inclined to contact Wolfe and try to convince him to take his answer back. Alas, unless and until he does there's no way to get the Lime Theory off the ground. Our situation is similar to that of an orthodox Christian if God were to say, "Trinity? I'm sorry...what was that again?" As for Newt as her father. The text names him as a *regular* clerk when Hyacinth is a child and a *head* clerk (working under "officers") when Silk goes to see him. You are suggesting that Silk has promoted someone whom he knows only thru his wife as "a horse's arse" past several ranks at the Fisc to control the purse of the most important governmental body in Viron. I can't see it. -- Crush --
