Is Jane Silberry related to Jane Siberry?

Distant relative I believe. Thanks – once a sub-editor, always a sub-editor.

A smartarse, you mean - and I'd agree. Sorry - couldn't resist. Just back from Canada myself. Saw (among many other things) a huge and very impressive new mural portrait of Leonard Cohen in Montreal, done in what appears to be patterned brick. (Oh, and some bears and bald eagles, but they're off-topic.)

Great you went Canada. Never been, but if I did it would be for Cohen, bears and bald eagles...
