Oh boy, since we can't seem to stop playing with this subject, Jeff reminds
me of a children's cartoon show about pirates in England years ago. It too
had a character called Master Bates. But that wasn't enough. Oh no. They
also had a character named "Seaman Staines".
It's hard to imagine writers getting away with that these days. Or could
they really be so innocent?!
