He said the residents "those bastards" of Westminster complained to the city council that the bell was much too = loud. His personal note to all this was that he was of the opinion, and probably still is of the opinion today unless he died or had some kind of = awakening, he was at that time of the opinion that the reason they objected to the ringing of that bell at any time was because it is a Catholic Church and = not a Church of England Church, thus NOT because it is too loud.

(back) Subject: Wanamaker concert tomorrow (x-post) From: <DudelK@aol.com> Date: Fri, 21 Dec 2001 20:31:04 EST   Hope to see some of you at the Christmas concert at Wanamaker's tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm. Last time I was there at Christmas time was in 1963 = when Mary Vogt was the star with the Dancing Waters. Should be quite a = different experience this time around! I'm sure it will be well worth the train ride = up from Washington. Maybe even a little nosh at Reading Terminal Market.   DudelK Washington, DC
