Waiting for Norris

• I was amused to see that certain invitations to the launch of David Norris's autobiography, 'A Kick Against The Pricks', were blocked by the "internet bad-language police" aka the recipient's anti-spam system, leaving a number of expectant invitees somewhat disgruntled.

Given that the title of the senator's 'kiss and tell' is a play on Samuel Beckett's 'More Pricks Than Kicks', the Master of Minimalism would have been impressed with an invite that "uninvites" itself!
