Right, Mark. Austen it is!

My only excuse is that I know a great folksinger/guitarist named George Austin.

My wife, Barbara, discovered Jane Austen when she was very young, and she has problems watching movies (even stuff on Masterpiece Theatre) adapted from her novels. Also with the Bronte sisters, particularly Charlotte's Jane Eyre, which I think Barbara has memorized. She can practically do a sing-along with the dialog, and when they deviate from the original, it causeth her to cry out and rend her garments!

She browses Mudcat from time to time, but maybe she'll miss my heinous goof. . . .
