: : : I have been informed that a Mr. Briggs has a wonderful definition re: Catch-22. I wish to email with him and perhaps quote him in a book. Anyone aware of which Mr. Briggs I am speaking about, please notify me as to how I may email him, or please provide him my email address. Thanks, Donna firstname.lastname@example.org

: Dear ESC,
: My researcher has just informed me that I am to look for ESC, not Mr. Briggs, she mixed the two of you up, sorry. I came on here to make the correction, and found that you have posted. Please email me so I can explain to you my interest in having your quote. Thank you very much. By the way, all of you, this is a wonderful place you have here, a wealth of information! Thanks, Donna
I wish I could claim credit for the new information on Catch 22. But the original research was by Mr. Briggs. I reposted it from the archives when we had the question come up again. (See link below.) The information that I posted was from a book about book titles. (The Phrase Finder site is the brainchild of Gary Martin. He lets us come here and play.) ESC
