      There's a funny story about the Queen meeting the cast of Goldfinger. The cast members were worried about introducing the Galore character to her. They thought of changing the character's name to "Kitty Galore" but apparently the conversation went something like, "I play Pussy Galore." "Nice to meet you Pussy" and that was that. The Queen is a class act, of course she wouldn't make a joke about the character's name.

      To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

        Being the single intellectual in a village of 1,100 souls ain't much fun, especially when 1,099 of those don't think you're all that smart.--Lucy Marsden

          edition Laserdisc. So I read it about 20 years ago so I might be mangling it a bit but the essence of the story is correct.
