    What all this has to do with Harry Belafonte is beyond me, but as to Roger's point above. On the most basic level, I would define a "free country" as one that I can choose to remain in or leave without any intereference from anyone in authority.

    Meanwhile, given the length of this thread, I guess I can only offer Harry a belated Happy Birthday. Hope he had a hell of a great party!

    Dear George,

    I don't think there are ANY free countries, at that point, because you generally need a passport or (within the Schengen Accord countries) at least an identity card -- assuming you want to get back in, that is.

    But you're right, it's a long way from Harry's birthday.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Well Hugo's not my idea of a "main squeeze"; but no worse than huggin' "W", I suppose....

    Yeah, you are probably right, but can you imagine Hugo hugging Hillary? Even Bill gave up on that. I'm sorry I couldn't resist. I need to get back into my darkroom.

    Did anyone hear this morning's BBC The Interview with Harry this morning? I'm wondering why my radios went curiously silent during the last part.

    Isn't it civilized that when folks don't like someone (other than his singing) everyone turns to drink.
    Just read a dissertation on 'painters and plumber's colic' caused by lead poisoning from lead coils in ancient stills.
    Fortunately in a coral island lead plumbing is quickly lined with calcium carbonate deposits or I'd be gone to the happy hunting ground a long time ago. I'm forgetting the lead glazed water monkeys and corrugated asbestos sheets I cut and fitted in my youth. Now if I could only find my Cadmium Yellow printing ink! And I need some red lead caulking for these pipes and my dinghy.
