Catherine Wheel Named for the martyr St. Catherine, whose famed monastery sit on Mt. Sinai. Allegedly she was to be put to death a wheel by burning, which miraculously turned into flowers instead of flames. Matt Ruff's trilogy WATER GAS &* ELECTRIC features as one of its three main characters the daughter of the Mother Superior of the purple-clad Catholic order of lesbian, child-bearing nuns, the Order of St. Catherine of the Burning Wheel. If you haven't read WG&E, go out. Pick it up. Read it. Wait until you meet "29 Names for Snow". Or the "Eager Beaver". sikozu http://www.xanga.com/home.asp?user=3Dbananna69 -- Pedicat pueros tribas Philaenis... =AD Martial, Epigrams VII:70 --
