Peter Manchester: > To throw in one last twist, it could be that the Reichian spelling of >orgone/Orgonon is behind the video's placement of the ranch with the >cloudbusters in Oregon (instead of Maine). In which case we have a NEW slip/ >pun to take up with Kate. I was certainly astonished to see the "Oregon Times" appear in the "Cloudbusting" video; it may have been one of the things that made a lasting impression on me when I first saw the video. I do hope that Kate doesn't pronounce "Oregon" as "O-re-gohn" to make it parallel with "orgone". It would at least be an original mispronunciation. Meredith Tarr: >She (or whoever) found a Portland in Oregon, spaced on the fact >that the events in question happened in Maine, and the infamous >(to us Mainers, anyway ;) "Oregon Times" blooper was born. Blooper? I like the idea that somebody noticed that "Oregon" is an anagram of "orgone". What can you get by rearranging the letters of "Maine"? I also like it that Kate cast her eye this way, although if she really knew Oregon she would have known that we don't really need a cloudbuster that much. Although I could go for one now, with global warming and El Nino giving us an almost unpleasantly mild winter and a complete lack of snowpack.
