I can offer only an ostensible rebuttal or an indefinite denial.

We'll inquire further at the hearing on Sunday. Look for a carpenter named Lanz.

Love this book although the end is a bit of a let down, BUT, if one more person says 'Kafkaesque' to me when confronted with a bit of red tape I will burn every copy in existence!

Sorry, it's just that when people say Kafkaesque it really bugs me.
