Thanks for forwarding that, Ron.

I'm curious about the author's repeated use of the spelling
"queeries" and the like. I assume this is a deliberate
allusion to _queer_ 'homosexual', but I wonder if this is
relatively common for this particular word, or if other
words have similar spellings, or if's just this author's
personal practice.
