Ace Trucking Co was the name of a prominent US 1970s improv comedy group.

For years I have been wondering what in Absalom 'the Mills' were as we lead up to the final story and why they were named thus, rather fascinated by it all (a truly great story all round)

Ironically I have been storing some of these progs next to the mighty tome of William Blake poetry...

"And was Jerusalem builded here, Among these dark Satanic Mills?" - Jerusalem

Even singing this at the Cricket before the start of play.

The penny has finally dropped... Apologies to Gordon Rennie and of course Mr Blake...   :)

Noam Chimpsky - Noam Chomsky.

Actually I had never heard of him and was just listening to a song by one of my favourite bands and they use his name in the lyrics.

There was a famous chimpanzee subject of a study called Noam or Nim Chimpsky. The documentary film Project Nim covers his life. It makes very heavy viewing, as I remember.

The latter also named after the former, of course.

Both Noam and Nim feature in the film of Manufacturing Consent.
