I did not really think that Leicester was in London, or that the University of Leicester ought to be there, but the press release I read, from the university, began this way: * Location: Leicester, London * Venue: University of Leicester * Opening hours: 5.30pm GMT And this confused me. Today I used Google Maps, and asked for driving directions from the Sloan Square Hotel in London to the University, and Google told me it is 88.3 miles. I hope that British readers of the list will be able to find the university should they want to attend. -- Jonathan Beard firstname.lastname@example.org Jonathan D.
