July 6th. Tony the pest takes on a brave passer-by.

Tony excelled himself today. Normally he is content to interrupt other speakers’ talks with ‘fascinating’ observations that have nothing to do with the topic in hand, or object strenuously to something a speaker hasn’t said. What a blessing he is. But when a young passer-by bravely stepped up onto the Ladder of Knowledge to speak, Tony let him speak for about . . . how long? . . . before he felt the need to hog the limelight.

I have forgotten the young fellow’s name. Would he please remind me by leaving a comment?

Steve encountered a born again Christian and the discussion was civil, if not a little strange.
