- very expressive clowns: I have mused that many Free players have deep backgrounds in Roots musics - R&B, Soul, Gospel - but there are academics among them as well...

Mrs. Parq and I had morning-coffee conversation over whether Lee would be mentioned in the news as Dracula or Saruman. I checked about four articles. All were quick to mention Saruman, but all led with Dracula.
