Re: Port and literature

It surprised me that a butler of Craven's experience would not know how many dozens of Ck08 remained in the bin. Perhaps that was the only way to introduce the cellar book as a suspect?

I don't think Stokes's achievement was easy in any conditions. The SR for him and for Amla tells you a lot.

By the way, one of the true greats of atonal music died today. Let's all raise a glass to Pierre Boulez.
