Writes Laura Lippman in answer to our GREEN ACRES question: "Life just got really weird: I was going over a chapter I wrote for the current book, and there's a 'Green Acres' reference in it." As to the part about Craig Ferguson's apparent ignorance of GA, Ms. Lippman mentions two British writers of her acquaintance who are entirely and sadly unfamiliar with GILLIGAN'S ISLAND! She goes on, "What's weird is what is on air in England, even today. Hart to Hart! That Lee Majors show about the stunt man! It is unfathomable. An aside: I find the UK version of Deal or No Deal (the original) fascinating, yet I can't watch the U.S. one. Discuss."
