Subject:        Fencing Terms.

A person by the name of Jay Minnix sent me a very informed note on the
fencing term 'mountano', basically showing that the sources I'd found
weren't reliable.  Unfortunately, I'm unable to respond off-list-for
some reason, Jay's node can't be found by mine-so would like to say here
that I think the comments sent to me privately deserve a wider
audience.  I think that several of the participants in the thread would
be even more interested than I was in Jay's comments.

Sincerely,
Sean Lawrence.

How about the film "Last Action Hero" with Arnold Schwarzenegger (if
that's how you spell his name).  It has a scene featuring Joan Plowright
as a schoolteacher lecturing on Hamlet - using footage from husband
Laurence Olivier's film version - in which she calls Hamlet the "first
action hero".

Arnie's attitude towards action is a little different from Hamlet's -
"You killed my father?  Big mistake." - BOOM!
