SERGEANT DEAN finally got the floor at just after 8 am and cited one Barry Kidd who 'didn't like Sergeant Sessions – so pay up!' Short and sweet. (Reminds me of an incident in the UK when the guest speaker, a formidable military gentleman,  was kept waiting until almost midnight before being invited to speak. His opening gambit was ' Gentlemen, at times like this, I have two speeches – my long speech and my short speech. You have just heard the latter.' And sat down. - Ed)
