Client Kenyon mentions "Blackstone's Commentaries" in Perry's office: "Sir William Blackstone's 'Commentaries on the Laws of England' were first published in 1765-69," www.gutenberg.org observes. They were required reading in Thomas Jefferson's day. Mike Bedard 2.17.15.
TRIUMPH MOTORS. Ken Judson's Triumph TR4 (1961-65) was in the middle of the Triumph "TR Series". The Series started with TR2 (1953) and continued through the TR3, TR4, TR4A, TR5 to the TR6 (produced to 1976). These cars were designed for simplicity, low cost, ruggedness and reliability - which made them popular with weekend racing enthusiasts. Well over a quarter-million TR2s to TR6s were produced. TRs and MG Cars were main competitors for the lower-price sports car market. Triumph followed the TR6 with the totally restyled & redesigned TR7 and TR8 (produced to 1981). I have it on very good authority that mechanics disappear whenever TR7s & 8s approach the shop. TRIUMPH Motors folded in 1984, more here. Submitted by Gary Woloski, 11/22/11.

Just what was that statue made from? It survived unscathed being thrown over a cliff, and was light enough to float!
If we can believe Kenyon’s final line, it was made out of corn!
> I believe he was speaking metaphorically, as cornstarch is water soluable (as people nowadays can readily discover). Knowing what it isn't doesn't help in knowing what is is, tho; the final scene - and logic - would suggest he used clay, but that would certainly be too heavy...so maybe clay over a styrofoam core? or papier-mâché?
