Wendy's wonderful wealth redistribution whimsies

By Wendy Wonderwal - posted Monday, 15 May 2000

This is the new, improved version of that fabulous On Line Opinion feature previously known as Whimsies.

Note the major differences, please.

Well, first there’s an expanded heading.


Bigger. Brighter.

That’s always a good start and suggests that a certain amount of, um, effort went into putting it together.

Secondly, there are more links offered for your viewing pleasure, along with a few words to introduce them.

And thirdly, there is Wendy, who has cheerfully accepted the position of sub-editorette, Whimsies, which is a promotion for her. In her spare time, Wendy ponders the serious issues of life, such as: "Is it possible for a woman to have too many pairs of shoes?" and "What does one wear to a bloodless coup?" We, the rest of us in her head, suspect that Wendy wants to be a benevolent dictatorette when she grows up.

Wendy welcomes comments and suggestions. Mind you, if she doesn’t like what’s written, she’s likely to call on the services of the Lost Boys.

You have been warned.


You can contact Wendy through the editor, who will no doubt harangue her for her excesses in the usual inimitable style.

In this edition, Wendy says:

Who says there’s nothing of value on the Net? Ha! I barely scratched the surface and look what I found!
