Re: Catch-22 (Mr. Briggs) (ESC)

Posted by Thanks ESC. Appreciate your information. I want to use the comments made re: Catch-22 in my book. Would appreciate the author contacting me so I can get the quote correctly worded and list proper credit in the endnotes. Sure love this place. Tip my hat to G. Martin. Donna on November 22, 2003

: : 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
