"What, one might ask, does the suave, debonaire
Roger Thornhill have to do with the notion of
decomposition (emphasized by the unusual
coffin-shaped 'O') implied in the acronym

     Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2008, page 97

"To stay with the context of Cavell's brilliant reading

— Paul Gordon, op. cit., page 98
