Karlton Kelm’s pet beef: “Little magazines that have a P.O. Box number, then give up their box immediately upon suspending publication, without returning manuscripts, or even answering inquiries about them. I have lost five manuscripts in the past year, and have no way of contacting the editors. Such culprits should be shot on sight, or at least deprived of their beer and schnopps for at least a year.” Karlton lives in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Sparrow says Sunday is his hardest day. “It reminds me of endless boredom at the Museum of Natural History in my youth. But yesterday went well for me. I saw ‘Casablanca’ and ‘The Maltese Falcon’ on TV. Can you believe I’ve never seen them? I can because I don’t watch TV and I don’t remember ever watching movies on TV as a youth. I had the most abysmal viewing habits. Except for ‘Crusader Rabbit,’ ‘Dobie Gillis’ and ‘Burns and Allen,’ the rest was mouthwash. But I defend it; I think the best thing on TV is the worst — it’s the most pure, you know what I mean?”
