    INTRODUCTION John Major as a successor to Margaret Thatcher was always going to find life difficult. He says himself he rejected any talk of his creating 'Majorism' as Margaret created 'Thatcherism', claiming instead that 'The Conservative Party does not belong to any one individual'.

Before signing any kind of contract, consult an attorney. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING. This is especially true when signing a deal with a major label.

    The Lack of Comprehensive Speech in Catch 22 Most of what we really say has no meaning. This concept is perfectly supported in Catch 22, by Joseph Heller.

Colonel Cargill addresses his men by saying, 'You " re American officers. The officers of no other army in the world can make that statement. Think about it.'

    'Every line I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism,' reads the preface to George Orwell's satire, Animal Farm. The rest of that line, which reads 'And for Democratic Socialism as I understand it,' was omitted from the 1956 edition of the book. Orwell has been called a traitor to the socialists, while at the same time becoming a sort of hero to the right wing. Animal Farm is not only a parody of Stalinist Russia, it also demonstrates that Russi...

It is difficult to comprehend that selecting a major means I will have to concentrate on that field of study with strong commitment and passion, with little hope of ever changing that major. It seems that once I determine an occupation of interest, another opportunity seizes my att...

    Introduction Whoever had the crazy idea of dyeing Miss Tierney's hair blonde? Had the world gone mad? Whatever the reason, playing the part of an Italian village girl with platinum blonde hair can have done little to further Gene's career, especially since she does not even attempt an Italian accent, and limits herself to mechanically following a dreadful script which does not allow her to develop into any kind of believable character at all. This is a tasteless film in more ways than one: the s...
