Of course it was the other Mr. Sam, Sam Brylawski, who commented on
Graham's comments about the tree vs.Sonny and reminding the Canadian
that it was his since re-married widow Mary who got the extension law
passed in the rather devious fashion. To answer Graham's question about
what Sonny might have had up his sleeve, Mary is quoted as saying that
actually Sonny was in favor of PERMANENT copyrights, so perhaps we
should count our blessings that Mary only went after 20 years. Maybe
that was in honor of Sonny's short stature.
