Daniel, please use my name directly, George Duke. Daniel is evidently and awkwardly in his inherent lack of facility with language, taking hint from Joyce's thoughtful manners thread to speak somewhat indirectly when opposing camps disagree. There are different nuanced ways to do so. But Editors can be expected to withdraw commenting privilege altogether for direct name-calling. I do not see the joke Daniel alludes to in just ''Flying Elephant.'' ''Dumbo'' is comedic satiric Walt Disney character of a flying elephant, a clever recollection. // Daniel says he had no idea Thomas Raynor Dawson even existed. Dawson is the premier variantist with Boyer and Betza. Really sorry that anyone is unaware of Dawson, and CVPage shares in the blame within its recent narrow sphere of thoughtless proliferation. Of course, Gary Against the World or whatever emerges would be giant leap in the right direction. I'll do this Daniel the courtesy of dissecting and prioritizing (meaning finding the antecedents) his two and more Flying pieces another time.
