    ‘Nother thing about Baum: his first name is Lyman (like in the original owner of Odie in “Garfield”). Although he disliked it, it was the name of an uncle. Anyway, how does a clenched fist create a stronger mem’ry?

    James Bond author Ian Fleming also wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.(I was surprised to find out that the car actually existed!)

    Incidentally, I recall reading that some scholars say the Wonderful Wizard of Oz was actually an economic allegory. For instance, Dorothy’s shoes were originally silver in the book.

    writing answers on my fist always helped my memory on exams.

    The yellow represented gold. Many of the same allegories are in the 1939 “Wizard of Oz” movie too. Along with Yip Harbor’s music.
