For Mike Nichols,
whose birthday is today:

Angels in Arabia

Yesterday’s entries discussed an angel and a fugue; this suggests Clive Barker’s classic tale Weaveworld, which in turn suggests the following links:

1.  the Log24 archive,
     Aug. 1-6, 2005, and

2.  C. S. Lewis, George Orwell, and
     the Corruption of Language,

an essay at the website of
St. Christopher’s Cathedral
in Bahrain, Arabia.

Nichols, who is Jewish, may of course prefer the following remark of comedian Sarah Silverman:

“I wear this St. Christopher medal sometimes because– I’m Jewish, but my boyfriend is Catholic– it was cute the way he gave it to me. He said if it doesn’t burn through my skin it will protect me.”
