This is a response to VC 18 Stuart 4 ("Ionesco reiterated")...


If it not too much bother, I would be interested in an explanation of the absurdity in Ionesco plays. I suspect this is the only time in my life I will ever be exposed to Ionesco. Anything of his worth reading/seeing if I should ever stumble across the opportunity?

I confess - I don't know what a "Killfish" is either! I searched for the word "fish" in past volumes, thinking I must have misspelled it. It is not to be found! The only possibility I can think of is some obscure reference to "killifish". I can't imagine why I would have mentioned them - they are not commonly kept by the public. I might enjoy keeping some, but only because of scientific curiosity. They have unique environmental requirements and a very brief but interesting life cycle. Sorry for the confusion.

I would like to ask you a favor. Actually the favor is open to all with an interest in assisting a clumsy writer (me). I have enclosed a copy of three recent "Ask the Vet" answers I wrote. I would appreciate a critique on the writing. These are being published for the general public. I want the people to understand the information and not be confused by my writing style. It would appear several members of this society are well equiped to assist me with this endeavor. Help?
