Like a Puppet on a String

I’m glad to see that Tim Chesterton’s 60’s upbringing included the Very British medium of Gerry Anderson puppet shows. Peter Cook & Dudley Moore scaled the heights of this art form in ways that still induce Shock ’n Awe:

It’s a considerable relief that fallings out between Christians don’t ever involve motivelessly evil puppets or the senseless random destruction of national institutions — there’s always a reason for the behaviours in our fellow Christians that most vex and astound us, if only we can be bothered to look for it from their point of view...

Alan, I was actually raised in England 'til I was 17 - in the early 60s I was living on a street in Leicester that looked exactly like Coronation Street!

Many thanks, Tim. I've corrected the entry accordingly; Magic stuff!
