the pencil

Well, the fact that there is some anniversary for
pencils made in The United States of America (that is
what I take Mark Weider to mean; as most citizens of
the USA forget about the other American countries in
their rush to take over the world) is nothing special:
and as a Scot who, like most Scots labours under the
impression that everything was invented in Scotland -
I have to confess that pencils seem to have been
invented in England:

No doubt there are also anniversaries in Canada (which
is an American country) for the first kilt sewn in the
Yukon, and the first Gumbo served in Prince Edward
Island; but the modest Canadians forebear!

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
