Maar goed, nu de openingspassage die ik in zijn geheel citeer: "The father of Major Major, a charachter in Catch 22, a novel by Joseph Heller, makes a good living not growing alfalfa. "The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase amonut of alfalfa he did not produce". Each day, Mr. Major "sprang out of bed at the crack of noon.. just to make certain that the chorus would not be done"."
