On this very day in 1950 (a Saturday): George Orwell died. He was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic whose work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism. He was a volunteer for anti-fascist forces in the Spanish Republic from late 1936 to June, 1937 (having been badly wounded by a sniper bullet to his throat). He is best known for his allegorical novella “Animal Farm” (1945) and the dystopian novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” (1949). In 2008 The London Times ranked him second on a list of “The 50 greatest British writers since 1945.” Orwell’s work continues to influence popular and political culture, and the term “Orwellian”—descriptive of totalitarian or authoritarian social practices—has entered the lexicon together with many of his neologisms (newly-coined words or phrases) such as “Big Brother,” “Thought Police,” “Room 101,” “memory hole,” “newspeak,” “doublethink,” and “thoughtcrime.” Coda: George Orwell (born Eric Arthur Blair) in Bengal Province, British India on 25 June, 1903; died in London, 21 January, 1950.

Searching the (Cobras For Sale) page: this little-known (and lightning-fast) procedure actually works for just about any page on the Internet:

  • For Windows computer users: use “Control-F”… hold down your “Control” key and hit “F” (for “Find”), and a little “Find” dialog box appears. As you type in your word [let’s say it’s ‘Kirkham’ or ‘289FIA’ or ‘SB100’], your cursor will RACE to the first [and second, and third, and so on] occurrence of that word;
  • For Macintosh users: use “Command-F”… hold down your “Command” key and hit “F” (for “Find”); your search works precisely as it does for Windows users.
