To Orwell Today,

Hi Jackie,

Just 2 weeks after September 11th, my friend Chris was stopped at 6am by police. He was on his way to work in Poole, Dorset. 4 police patrols were involved in this major operation, involving 6/7 cops, who frisked him and searched his little sandwich box containing cheese and pickle, an apple and a fizzy drink. He was questioned for quarter of an hour, asked,

"What you up to"? He replied, "I'm off to work!"

He was wearing an army surplus combat jacket. The cops apparently got themselves into a right pickle over this major incident.

Greetings Raymond,

Next they'll probably be getting people to say:

"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick"

as a sobriety test.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
