    OMG, you are right. I'm smacking my forehead here. Good deduction, Flashy.

    I'm surprised at you hepcat! You should know your history! J/k...lol.

    I'd suggest that anyone on this board who hasn't read 1984 to go out and get a copy right away. Not just for its literary value (it's the work of a true genius), but the themes of surveillance and the lack of privacy totally gives you some insight into some of the motives and methods of the BB crew.

    I last read 1984 in 1984, but still - I knew who Winston Smith was the minute you posted the full name. Great to finally see a tie-in to that great book!

    Now we just need the "Thought Police" to get in there and drag Howie and Jennifer away.

    Well, I guess in their case it would be the "Lack of Thought Police".

    I think the whole Winston thing is pretty corny, but I laughed out loud when I saw it. The profile was pretty well done too.
    Gustav Holst was right!

    Does the DR count as the "Two Minutes Hate"?

    I think it's safe to say none of the hamsters would make it in the Jr. Anti-Sex League.
